17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Calm

The waters of the Radnor Lake were uncharacteristically still this one evening. As light clouds drifted overhead, a heron stood atop a log semi-submerged in tranquil blue waters. Grateful to the clouds for having drifted into position such that I could find an angle that contrasted the heron with the reflection of the clouds while retaining the heron's reflection in the lake. The easy white of the clouds, calm blue waters, and the still heron all contribute to this calm zen like photo.
