16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This photograph was taken in a local nature park and I loved how the spot of moss contrasted with the brown leaves. I chose to stand on the patch of green to symbolize how humans are impacting the environment through our "footprint." We have the responsibility to protect our environment.
