Honorable Mention

Photographer's Statement:

This photo relates to the theme “look to the forest” because in a forest there are many trees especially pine trees. When it started to snow and become frosty I decided to go take pictures, I love taking texture photos and in this picture there’s lots of it. You can see the frost and the pine tree itself. There are many seasons obviously but seeing the frost and how pretty everything is in the winter it is such a beautiful view. Everything about this photo I think fits the theme “look to the forest”
