18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Big Cypress National Preserve

Serene image of the Big Cypress National Preserve in the Everglades Florida. While visiting the Everglades and Big Cypress, I observed this scene where sunlight was finding its way to the swamp floor between the Big Cypress trees and illuminating the ferns below. I attempted to capture the mood and serenity of the scene.
