17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
If You Forget Me

This photo was taken at Mont Saint-Michel in France, one of the Natura 2000 Sites and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is a marvelous place where beauty, culture, history, and spirituality are one with its miraculous wildlife, landscape, and architecture. The title is owed to Pablo Nerudaʼs poem “Si tú me olvidas” (“If You Forget Me”). The combination of culture and nature leads to poetry, arts, spirituality, and imagination.
