14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunflower blanketed by autumn's first frost.
As I walked to breakfast one early autumn morning, I noticed the way that all the plants around me glistened so beautifully with frost under the soft sunlight. This photo and the story behind it represents sustainable travel, both through the means it was captured-if I had not chosen to walk, I would have missed this delicate view entirely- and through presenting what is at stake in the natural world without sustainable travel options.
