18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wish Upon a Star

This image was created in the Canadian Rockies at the start of winter with a fresh blanket of snow, but still unfrozen lakes. The sky was very cloudy and I wasn't sure if I would be able to capture any stars, but then we received a few minutes of magic, complete with a shooting star (meteor).
