14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
French Broad in late Fall.

Taking a walk across the bridge in Rosman, North Carolina, I noticed that the many brightly colored leaves had fallen into the French Broad river. It was a peaceful late November afternoon, and the sun was directly behind me as I took the picture. I felt that it was a great reminder if the beauty and grace of nature, and how grateful I am to live in an extraordinary place, like the Blue Ridge Mountains.
