19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
natural strength against adversity

This photograph was taken, after a storm on the ascent to the Pichupichu volcano in Arequipa Peru at 5000 m.s.n.m. or a little more, we found this sample of strength, where nature supports the most extreme to continue with life, contemplating our existence as something small and unnecessary in the world.
