12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Wisconsin's Polar Express

During my freshman year of college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I took the opportunity to photograph the first major snowfall of the winter during the night, and while I was taking pictures of the pristine untouched snow, a train happened to pass by me. The train tracks were located about 50 yards behind my dorm.
