19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Winter Magic

I captured this photo of Yellowstone, Wyoming's Grand Prismatic Spring by holding my camera out the window of my Piper Warrior airplane (and wearing two pairs of gloves to protect my hands from the painful cold). The 370-foot-diameter spring is the world's third-largest.
