20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Remember Your Roots

This image was taken in my yard at 7:30am. I walk my dogs past this tree and boulder several times each day. I'm intrigued by the way the light and reflections from the tree hit the rock at different times throughout the day. This little tree has finally established strong roots and is growing straight and tall. I like the juxtaposition of the young, little tree next to the strong, weathered, imposing boulder.
