15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Magical Realm

Corixo Negro, Pantanal - Brazil. We woke up at 4 in the morning and left camp by 4:30 to get to Corixo Negro, a small river off the Cuiaba River, before sunrise. When we got there the early morning mist was very thick giving and eerie yet magical atmosphere.
