The Horizon Tree

Photographer's Statement:

This tree in the morning sunrise, against the horizon, makes me mentally healthy because of its beauty. It is a beautiful fall tree and the morning sunrise adds so much Beauty to this picture. There are many components that add to the beauty of this picture, such as the multi-colored sky in the background, the many branches of the tree going in every direction, the snow on the ground, and the field in the distance.
