17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Autumn Meets Winter

Ohio endures its fair share of inclement weather; nevertheless, every new quarter delivers fresh natural beauty for watchful eyes to behold. "Autumn Meets Winter" was captured solely because I happened to be in the right place at precisely the right time: awake in my home immediately following an expected autumn snow shower. Although, predictably, the snow disappeared in rapid fashion that early November day, the joyful memory of two distinct seasons sharing my backyard will now endure forever. Are the seasons colliding? Intersecting? Dueling? Delivering greetings? Offering compliments? Exchanging announcements?
