14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Nature Takes Over

As I was walking through the woods near our home with camera in hand looking for birds to photograph, I came across this lone shoe that looked as though it had been there for years. Old and tattered, but nature had taken over and began to grow on it. As if nature knew it had to take over. What would have just been a piece of discarded trash, nature was making it beautiful.
