16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photo was taken while backpacking around the base of Mt. Baker a few winters ago. The weather was awful, bitter cold and icy. The photo is profound and powerful, because it communicates stillness and silence, when in reality the mountains were whipping us around without mercy.
