19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Forest Portal

A long-ago fallen tree whose root system became upturned. A destructive, yet marvelous accident slowly exposed the seldom seen underside of the tree to the elements. The tree has now become a meditative sanctuary. Gifting all those who explore a reminder of how beautifully nature reclaims all.
