18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Forest Giant

A massive tree in the forest of the Tai National Park in Cote d'Ivoire. It looks like a natural monument. The root system is very shallow and therefore very wide and arranged in a pillar type of structure in order to hold these forest giants.
