17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Dolomiti Mountains before the storm

This shot was captured while hiking at the base of the Dolomite Mountains, around 2500 m elevation, in the Val Gardena area of South Tyrol, Italy. It was a very quick change from bright blue skies to filtered light and 5 minutes after the shot a summer rain came pouring down.
