Photographer's Statement:

I’ve always loved nature, not only because it’s beautiful, but also because it brings so much peace to my mind. The tree in this photo is lonely and empty, but still standing. Like this tree, throughout the rainy, snowy, dry days,  always remember to stay strong and keep thriving, even if you’re lonely and empty. Love all nature.
