15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wildflowers on the Blue Ridgeway Parkway at Sunset.

The wildflower photograph was captured during the beginning of Fall 2017 in Virginia at the Blue Ridge Parkway at sunset. It was a hot, sunny, and hazy day. However, as the sun set over the Blue Ridge mountains, the clouds and a nice breeze fell over the parkway. The effect was a beautiful orange glow through the mountain range and radiating through the wildflowers.
