10th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Smithsonian magazine’s 2012 photo contest attracted more than 37,600 submissions. Those images have been whittled down to 50 finalists in the natural world, people, travel, Americana and altered images categories. A sampling of the finalists, along with the Smithsonian’s captions, are reprinted with permission here
Some very amazing photos here. I love the Milky Way coming out of Mt Rainier.
