17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

on a rainy autumn Sunday in the woods of the Apennines, northern Italy, many streams descended from the mountain carrying leaves, branches and pebbles downstream. This, locally called "Barcon" which translated into English language literally means "big boat" (I dont' know why) although it was a small one, it carved a deep gorge in the woods over centuries that combined with the colors of nature in autumn hit my attention and so I photographed it
