16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Wood Spikes

Beneath a towering redwood tree I found these back-lit spikes of old wood. Closeups of nature's beauty have fascinated me since my youth when I concentrated on flowers. Now, in the redwood forests of Califorina I find many fascinating details worth photographing, These tiny wood spikes reminded me of the towering buttes of the Southwest.
