Photographer's Statement:

This photo shows that even though someday the tree will be at its end it has made an impact on everyone and everything around it. It tells the story of the wheel, from sun to lake to a cloud that showers rain. Everything around you is along for the ride of the wheel. You will keep growing, changing and moving on, but specific trees will stay in your memory. As long as the trees are following the wheel we are too.
