14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Iceberg XV, photographed in Greenland
I have always felt a personal connection to nature. It is a soulful experience, one pursued in solitude but filled with joy and peace. I recently developed a body of work focused on icebergs. Although icebergs are on a grander scale, there is nevertheless an intimate relationship established when photographing and now, an urgency to document their uniqueness and raw beauty given the alarming rate at which they are melting. The backlighting was stunning in this image.
