Photographer's Statement:

To me this photo speaks to me because this was taken at my grandparents house. My Grandparents live in Hagerman Idaho. When I am there I feel safe and calm. If I could describe my happy place in three words, I would say, stunning, bright and magical. These are the same three words I would use to describe this photo. This photo means a lot to me because it is a reminder that I am loved and safe and always have a place to go to clear my mind.
