18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Crimson Clover Beauty

My son planted Crimson Clover as a cover crop last Fall, and it was absolutely beautiful this Spring mixed with the wild Mustard. The cover crop protects the soil from eroding over the Winter. I took portraits of my neighbors for them, but I took candid shots while they were playing. This picture captures the innocence of childhood framed by nature's beauty.
