Photographer's Statement:

I was on a nature walk with my class when I took this picture, at first I saw it as nothing more than a dead trait but after seeing the theme for this year “healthy tree healthy me” it made me think of it in a new way. It’s a dead tree sure but it’s a dead tree that’s paving the way for so much more life, giving energy for grasses and flowers to grow.
