19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wizard from the earth

A fallen Yakusugi tree, hundreds of years old. A new tree grows from the fallen tree again. From a large fallen tree, new trees were growing in all directions, forming a colossus. It was as if it was a wizard that could not hold the energy from the earth.There seems to be a will that transcends human knowledge.
