Rock of Ages

Photograph by Nicholas Roemmelt

After a heavy thunderstorm, a small pond grants a mirror reflection of a hiker at the Wave, the most famous landform in Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona and Utah. Says Nicholas Roemmelt, who submitted this picture to the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest, it was "a calm and solemn place on a perfect day."

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2014 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.
