17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Faded Sunflower

A flourishing flower is a symbol of youth, happiness, and joy. The photo above is an example of the opposite, a faded sunflower. The image represents the depressed, bitter mood that the winter season brings to nature. As the weather becomes cooler and the sun shines less, nature is negatively impacted.
