14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Western Sunlight Enchanting an Aspen Forest

A few friends and I decided to get outside to marvel at the fall colors among the beautiful wilderness that southern Utah offers. We drove to an mountainside aspen forest to watch the western sunlight ignite the leaves. It was one of the most breathtaking scenes I had ever witnessed, walking below the trees glowing against a cerulean sky, and feeling like I was somewhere in a dream.
