Photographer's Statement:

I was walking home from school when I took this picture. I wasn’t in the best mindset at the time, but when I saw this tree I couldn’t help but smile. I spent a bit of time walking around it and taking pictures until finding the one that in my mind perfectly represents its beauty. When I saw them for this year I thought what was better then a tree that was literally blossoming with health making a healthier me.
