Tiny pine cone at the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta GA

I was at a park near the Chattahoochee River one evening just before sundown, and decided to take a quick picture of a baby pine cone on a step leading to the river because of it's starkness. It seemed lonely, and it made a beautiful subject.
