Photographer's Statement:

The theme “Healthy Tree Healthy Me” makes me think about how trees and nature affect us, the whole cycle of trees with air and how we live, how nature works. This picture was one of the moments that helped me see just how beautiful nature can be. Alot of times it’s hard for me to see how pretty nature can be, living in a city and all where there isn’t much nature, but this picture really helped me see how each individual piece of nature contributes to each other and come together as a beautiful piece of artwork.
