13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Shield of Serenity
The landscape is that of Umm Qais, a city located at the border between Jordan and Syria. Just beyond the mountainous hills, there is Syria, a state that as of late, has been drenched in terror and heartbreak. The landscape and calm of this site acted as a serene sort of barricade for what lies beyond the hills.
