13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wet World

I have a place that I frequent often that allows me to connect with nature. On most days when I go, the Sun is illuminating all the beautiful plants that grow there. This day however the sky was gray and it had been rainy all morning. I decided that I would walk the path in hand and an to umbrella shield me. I happened upon these Pink Fairy Dusters that were collecting all the raindrops. I stooped down in the rain and took as many pictures as I could before the rain really started to come down. Satisfied with my shots, I made my way back to the car...wet and cold but happy to have walked the path anyway!
