Joshua Rowen-Keren, Berkeley High School, The Lost Coast

I think this photo does a good job capturing the beauty that is so often taken for granted. This photo was taken on The Lost Coast, a beautiful place only a few miles away from grocery stores and restaurants. While people struggle with school, jobs, and family, it is very easy to lose sight of the magical things that have existed around us for years. I’m hoping that this photo can help remind people how important our relationship with nature is as well as the importance of appreciating both the big and little things in life.
