Photographer's Statement:

During summer, my family and I went on long camping trips often longer than a week. We spent long days tanning, drinking cold beverages and enjoying the cold stream. During a certain trip I lay in a hammock catching wonderful glimpses of the trees, reseting my mind and sending the stress away.
