21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Texel lighthouse at sunset

It was a drab winter in the Netherlands, which made my friends and I even happier when a cold but sunny day came around. We went to Texel island, which is famous for its natural beauty and this smal hamlet surrounding a lighthouse. We had spent all day hiking and nearly missed the early sunset, but arrived just in time for me to take this shot.
