17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
View of the city of Yerevan and Mount Ararat from the cascade.

I rushed to the cascade early in the morning with only one goal in order to photograph the balloons. But I did not have time, they have already flown. But I was lucky to see something that others do not often manage to see. Moody Mount Ararat, which often likes to hide behind the clouds. And plus everything, it was beautifully backlit by the sun.
