14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Minnesota Tree

I had just stepped outside of the hospital where my friend had just passed away and I wanted to find a quiet place to be alone. While I was feeling extraordinary pain I sat at the base of this tree and looked up. The tree reminded me that beauty and life can be found anywhere at any time.
