12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Aspens in Storm's Wind
The wind was strong and only getting stronger. The skies were getting darker. Snow was coming. Our goal was to make it over the pass out of Teton into Yellowstone before another snow storm bore down. There was no time for photos… I saw the layers of muted colors. I had to stop, I zoomed, snapped this one; zoomed out, snapped two more, not so good. The storm wasn't waiting. Go, go… (We were also racing against a government (i.e. national parks) shut down deadline.)
