Honorable Mention

Photographer's Statement:

As the Earth turns towards the “springtide,” we see a heavy cloak lifted. The darkness of winter is beginning to wane. The sun releases these branches, as they turn towards the sky. The river melts, the brambles turn green, and finally, the old growth forest is awake. We should look to these forests for enlightenment our selves. For truly, you WILL find your self refreshed, revived, or perhaps “awakened.”
