15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunrise on a cold morning
Mornings always feel hopeful to me. On this one, the sun stretched all the way across the sky, and reflected on the water. The picture is eerily dark in some places. The sun is intense and powerful. It reminds me of times in my life where I have just had to grit my teeth and plow forward despite the difficulty of doing so. There is always light. There is always hope.
