17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Norway

I was on a solo road trip above the arctic circle. I'd seen this little town in pictures, but throughout my travels I know not to expect to find what I've seen in curated images to be the reality when I arrive. This location proved me wrong. It literally took my breath away, and as I held back tears i said to myself, "its real." I've never been so overcome with emotion in a place on this earth.
