18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunrise on the Potomac

This is along the Potomac river in Maryland near the Billy Goat Trail A around sunrise where I wanted to capture the last golden leaves remaining on this sycamore tree at the bank of the river while catching the sun's first rays of the day. The contrast of the warm tree and leaves against to the cool river and hills made for a pleasing image.
