14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Clear Waters in Banff, Alberta
This photo is of Athabasca Glacier in Banff, Alberta, Canada. This was taken while on a hike near the glacier as I looked down and saw a view so incredible I had to capture it. This photo represents our unaltered, natural world and inspires me to preserve its beauty every day. I also submitted this under travel, as I feel that Canadians especially neglect to travel in their own country, however to see photos like this, it might inspire them to do so. This photo also represents sustainable travel, because travelling and absorbing the beauty of nature simultaneously is one of the best ways to understand the true beauty of our world.
