17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Diamond Rain

I purposefully admire my rose garden every morning as my young son and I wait for his school bus to arrive. One chilly autumn day, we both noticed that it had rained overnight and, to our collective delight, thousands of glistening droplets remained upon every visible surface. One family of leaves in particular captured my attention; hence, "Diamond Rain" was created to preserve our memory for all to enjoy.
