Photographer's Statement:

Given that Arbor Day is a day in which Idahoans dedicate their day to tree planting and appreciating the role of renewable resources that have an impact on their lives. My photo “A Peaceful Distraction” resembles what Arbor Day stands for -Celebrating Trees. My photo shows how Idaho is filled with nature especially trees given that our capital Boise Idaho is known as the City of Trees, my photo shows how Idaho has multiple types of trees while other forms of beauty such as our amazing foothills. Despite the development going on in Idaho we will always have our Trees and celebrate it, we will always value our trees over anything else
