14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Rocky Mountain

I have always been fascinated with mountains. They are the Earths true giants and they present a symbol of power and great might. This photograph was taken on Spring Break trip to Colorado with some of my college roommates. I snapped this picture during a dark and heavy snowstorm. I wanted to give the mountain a majestic, almost fantasy look and emphasize on the darks and shadows to bring out the detail within the mountain itself.
