19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Fall of Autumn

In the waning days of autumn, I captured this sunrise image in the Lamar Valley section of Yellowstone National Park. Most of the leaves had fallen from the trees and the grass was changing from yellow and orange to brown, but mother nature decided to provide one last burst of pink in the sky before the storm clouds took over and dropped the first snow of the season.
