Photographer's Statement:

This photo is one that captures the very beautiful and vibrant greens of the trees and the striking beauty of the sun all in one shot, but there is more to it than just that it captures the beauties this life holds and how precious it truly is. A lot of people take the life we have for granted, and they miss all of the amazing things this world can give us such as the trees. Without these magnificent plants we would not be able to enjoy the fruits of life, so do not take what they give us or their beauty for granted because one day you could end up regretting it.
