17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Light Through the Trees

I went hiking through this park with a friend of mine. The hike was very steep and rocky, but finally the path evened out. Just as it did, I saw a ray of sun burst through the trees. It was so beautiful and peaceful I had to take a picture.
