14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wild Sweet Peas

While meandering along the walkways at Dumas Bay Park with a friend on a mild September afternoon, I noticed the wild sweet peas interspersed amongst the mounds of dense ivy, the cliffs just behind them cluttered with dense vegetation angling sharply down to the water below. This one sweet pea against the exterior of the barricade fence caught my attention, rather isolated from the rest and were it not for the fence it would've been in plain sight so it, too, could've shown off its magnificence.
