17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Shadow drawn on a snowy field

It is a poplar tree on the hill of Biei, Hokkaido. On a very cold morning, the trees are lit by the sun and the shadows spread over the snowy field. A fantastic sight as if a natural god appeared. The scene seemed to celebrate the coming spring.
