Leafless, But Not Lifeless

Photographer's Statement:

My photo shows some trees with lots of branches, but there are no leaves. Just because these trees don’t have any leaves, it doesn’t mean that they are not happy, healthy trees. This photo represents  “Healthy Tree, Healthy Me”, because when they grow new leaves, they are able to provide clean oxygen for us to breathe in.
