13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A hot air balloon sunrise over Sedona, Arizona.
The 4:30 AM wake up call was worth it. When people think of Arizona, the Grand Canyon is what comes to mind. I believe that the beauty of the state can be seen elsewhere. The weather was perfect for my hot air balloon ride: a crisp, clear morning. This landscape photograph was taken from the perspective of another hot air balloon. The sunrise was reflecting perfectly onto the rocky landscape and the adjacent hot air balloon which created a flawless scene for this photograph. This photograph was taken with a DSLR camera.
