12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wind Shaped Sinews

Normally noticed for its autumn foliage, by November this tree was bare and lonely looking. However, coated in damp from a nights rain, this tree showed off its strong limbs shaped by leads of struggle against the Yorkshire winds. Still worth appreciating, even without its foilage!
