13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A flower growing from within a wall

This photo is showing a yellow flower growing inside a wall made of Jerusalem stone. I found this flower at my school, in Gush Etzion, Israel. This is the only flower growing in this wall, so for me it has a lot of significance. When I took this picture, I wanted to show that although the flower might seem "lonely", it's beauty shines best when it's standing alone in the wall.
