21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Ponderosa Pinecone Natures' Delight

There is something truly beautiful about how pine-cones adorn the Ponderosa Pine tree. Seeing such a sight hearkens memories of the old western TV show Bonanza. Gods' paintbrush creates many such beautiful scenes in the natural world. Enjoy them!
