13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mystic Tree

This is a Japanese Maple tree in the summer. It is no more than 3 feet and is very unassuming especially in the midst of the taller and bigger trees surrounding it. I was intrigued by the intricate branches and wanted to show the complexity and beauty by taking a photo at this angle.
