Smoke Through the Trees

2006 International Photography Exhibition
“Smoke Through the Trees"
Location: Honduras
Photographer: Michele Nielsen
Category: Places
Award: Honorable Mention

In the photographer's words: "It seemed like everywhere we went in Honduras there was a beautiful view waiting to be photographed. This beautiful view had an obstruction: a large forest fire was sending smoke up into the sky and nearly blocking out the sun in this photo. The photo was taken at a university in Honduras where we learned that one of the students who was fighting the fire was unable to make it out. This photo makes me remember the beauty of Honduras as well as the destruction of the forest fire."
