18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Sunset Sky Over Canyon de Chelly

Summertime brings dramatic skies to the Southwest, especially at sun down. I captured this image at sunset as the evening skies threatened monsoon weather. This is one of my favorite overlooks in Canyon de Chelly, where the walls of the canyon and trees seem to undulate away from the viewer.
