13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Everything is Connected

The sky feeds the land, where water runs down and collects in pools. I love how the striations of sandstone rock show the path the water takes to get to the pool, and how the clouds (droplets of water themselves) reflect in the water. The wind blows the clouds and helps shape the sandstone. Every element is seen. Everything is connected in this photo.
