17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Forest of Dreams

We heard about a secret beach from some people that we stopped to talk to. As we headed through the forest, the scene felt like a fantasy with the light that was cutting through from the sunrise. As we got closer to the beach we could see the ocean and sand with perfect clarity. We stopped to take this shot out of pure awe-inspiring inspiration.
