17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Tranquil Nights at Ambergris Caye

Captured late at night, most of the tourists had gone back to their hotels. The beach was quiet with only the noise of the water gently brushing the shore. The moon was full and peeked out from behind the ever slowly drifting clouds. The calm waters provided a sense of peace and serenity that is unmatched to anything I had ever felt. Even though I was far from home, I felt a sense of peace and unity with the natural world around me.
