15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
New Mexico Night Sky
As part of an homage to Ansel Adams, I traveled to New Mexico, capturing the illuminated clouds of a distant thunder storm. Similar to Adams' work, this black and white image displays contrast between extreme whites and rich blacks. Featured in the foreground is Philmont Scouting Ranch, a 140,000 acre reserve featuring breathtaking stargazing, various outdoors activities, the wreckage of a crashed WW2 bomber, and endless backpacking trails.
