13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Stormy weather on the Tasman Sea
I was in Fiordland National Park studying sustainable tourism in New Zealand on a study abroad program when I took this picture. I was on a boat riding through the beautiful fiords out to the Tasman Sea. By having a restricted number of tourists allowed to come through the fiords to the Tasman Sea each day, the effect on the environment is limited. Sustainable travel practices must be used in order to preserve this amazing ecosystem.
