15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fall Foliage in New England

A crisp fall day last year, a classmate and I decided to hike the woods near Yale University. It was a beautiful sight, all the bright golden leaves on the ground. I was going to wait until we actually reached the summit to take photos, but this scene was too poetic, and I couldn’t resist taking a snap.
