Photographer's Statement:

Just like a fresh breath of air, the chill that encases each branch brings me joy. This ancient willow has lived life and life again, seeing everything change but remaining unchanged. It represents, the beauty, and the necessity of all trees. Leave them be, and watch their beauty grow.
