15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Lone Photographer

Many people do not realize that landscape photography is one of the loneliest forms of photography. It requires incredible amounts of patience, time, waiting, persistence and then more patience to capture those once-in-a-million moments that happen when the stars align. It is taxing and trying and exhausting at times. But when the shot comes together, it makes the world stand still - as I'm sure this lone photographer found.
