Photographer's Statement:

My photo was taken in a forest. Being in the forests calms me, they have a positive effect on my mind when I am stressed or upset. They are overall very beautiful plants. Another thing I love about trees and forests is that the air is so clean/fresh. It feels good and calming to be in one.
