Burnt Trees, Yellowstone

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Photo Contest Images

At sunset, peaceful burnt woods just surround you quietly. Together with your heart beating, you can feel the smooth breeze and hear the sounds of emerging exuberance underneath. The perfect ending is in the endless. The picture was taken in Yellowstone National Park.
