14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunset Tree Silhouette

While we were camping at the Great Sand Dune National Park in Colorado, I decided to take a short hike by myself at sunset. While walking along the trail the sun set over the dunes in the distance, but it was this silhouette of a tree against the setting sun that really took my breath away.
