Window To the Future

Photographer's Statement:

The outlining trees in this photo create a figurative window to the charred future of the forest. We need to devote more time towards healthily replanting our forests and dedicate money towards forest fire prevention tactics. If we cannot care for them, we will be without them in the end.
