Simple. Passionate. Pure. If we all could be so enchanted by the optimism this little boy with Down Syndrome brings to all around him!

15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Wind - Imperial Dunes - Glamis, California

I had climbed to the top of a large dune to capture the sunset, and happened to look down and see the wind blowing sand in sheets off the top of the dune. I was struck by the fact that every moment captured with my camera was unique as the landscape was constantly changing, and wanted to try to capture an image that conveyed that.
