15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Road Home

This was the very early beginnings of a sunset as my Mom and I were driving home one hot, summer evening. The alignment of the clouds with the rays of sun was so unusual compared to what I have seen before and I wanted to preserve that moment. You can almost feel the heat of the day as you look at the way the light hits the road.
