19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
The House of Mother Nature

This photo shows a formation of clouds like I'd never seen before, or as the airplane captain said "it's Mother Nature at her finest". I've been working on changing the course of my life for the past 4 years to go get out of the rat race and finally live out my dream of becoming an author. After years of writing, research, and outlines, I was invited to fly to Tuscany to complete my book, thus making my dream a reality. I honestly don't know how I survived for all the past years, being poor and alone, but I was told "if you make it to the water, God will part the clouds". I made it across the ocean, the clouds parted, and this incredible lair in the sky appeared. I take it as a sign of positive divinity watching over me.
