19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Last Day of Fall

A still moment and foggy afternoon captured from the mystical mountains of Washington State. This was the last day of fall, as the scenery was slowly changing from bright and colorful to frozen and dying. Freezing rain began moments after taking this photo that was for sure snow a couple hundred feet higher up the mountain.
