13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunset - Truck Stop, Salome AZ

While traveling from Las Vegas to Phoenix, we needed to refuel at this truck stop. I noticed a huge American flag flying in the desert wind, the trucks and mountains tucked safely below it and the sinking sun. The isolated majesty of this ordinary moment struck me, so I pulled out my DSLR to record it.
