Evergreen, Strong, and Sturdy

Photographer's Statement:

Pine trees symbolize eternal life. They’re very strong and sturdy. That is why we use pine trees during Christmas time, they can hold ornaments. Unlike other trees, they do not lose their leaves or color during winter. Pine trees are a good reminder that we all have strengths within ourselves.
