19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The view from a dune

I was hiking the woods and dunes of Muskegon State Park in July, 2021 when, stopping for a water break in the shade of a tree, came across this view of the expanse of the dunes. I was struck by how the tree and branch framed the view looking out at the dunes.
