Joshua Riley Smith


I took this picture at 9:38 AM from the top of a huge Ponderosa Pine Tree, that I climbed after a snow and frost.
It was freezing and my hands burned from the frost, but for this stunning picture it was well worth it.

About the Photographer

My Name is Joshua Smith, (though I go by Joshie). I am 15 years old, and I am in High School as well as taking a college class. I have grown up in the mountains on 25 acres, and I love being active and climbing trees, which is why I was able to take this picture. TheĀ gorgeous property I get to live on inspires me to climb high and photograph it at it’s best.
