14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Ducks Indulging in Natures Natural Beauty

This photograph portrays the calmness and beauty that overcasts Arizona as the sun shines its pure light during its evening set. Along with the other animals in this pond, the ducks lovingly engage in the tranquility the warm sun provides as it sets behind Camel back Mountain. As everyone in the city begins to slow down and rest in preparation for the next day, so do these ducks, and so does all of nature.
