Photographer's Statement:

I took this picture because I saw the light coming through some tall trees with bushes framing them on either side.  These layers helped show the depth of field and a beautiful perspective.  The light coming from the back looks almost heavenly with its brightness shining throughout the background.  There are small hills with trees around that adds some interest due to their uneven placement within the frame.
