Second Wave photographer wins Viewer's Choice award from Smithsonian Mag

Shawn Malone, managing photographer for UP Michigan Second Wave, has won a Viewer's Choice award from Smithsonian magazine for her time-lapse video of the stars over Michigan's "North Country."

Writes Smithsonian: 

We wanted to give our readers the chance to vote for their favorite video and with over 3,000 votes, the winner was clear. Photographer Shawn Malone's timelapse video of the night sky over Michigan's Upper Peninsula captivated our audience’s attention more than any other video. The timelapse consists of over 10,000 photos and took an entire year to shoot. Thanks to a lot of coffee and persistence, Malone captured 33 vistas over the UP's night sky that she hopes will still be visible for future generations.
