13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Tied to the water by marriage.

Simply put, this photo captures the beauty behind love of people and the love of natural forces. We are all connected to the wind, the water, and the sun. This photo shows a couple in front of the Salt Lake City Mormon Temple, a common sight in Utah. However, it is these everyday acts of love that we often take for granted. The water as much as marriage is something so very pertinent and divine to the human experience. It's what makes us appreciate the world and why I was happy to capture the two in sync.
