Up to the sky

Photographer's Statement:

When given the opportunity living things always seem to go upward to the sky, specifically trees which almost always grow upwards even through the obstacles they always grow and live. They provide for us and even though they start as a small sapling they grow into big trees and after a while they can grow taller than buildings. Trees growing and thriving remind me that we always need to persist and never lose hope.
