Honorable Mention

Photographer's Statement:

  • Snowy days with tall trees and snowy days with healthy trees are tall. The trees are alive but it may not seem like it. Even without leaves, the trees are still healthy and beautiful. Have you seen a tree walk? No, but they stay put and give a very nice view, especially on snowy days.
