Photographic Moment

Sunrise

Samarendra Singh arrived at the NIH Bethesda campus one morning at 5:00 a.m. to tend to his experiments. But before he headed to the lab, he stopped long enough to set up his tripod camera mount on the grass near the Natcher Building (Building 45) and wait until the light was just right to snap this photo. “The sky was cloudy, but the light dispersed by the rising sun was magical,” he said. Singh is a visiting postdoctoral fellow in NIDDK’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology.
