14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Dying tree caught in a rainstorm.

This tree had grown with me my entire life in my front yard for as far back as my memory goes, but due to some odd occurrence, this tree began to shed it's leaves and die. So as a way to document it's standing as a part of my youth before uprooting the remains, I took this photo during a rainstorm as a way to show the emotions I was feeling at the time.
