Photographer's Statement:

I feel that this photo represents healthy tree healthy me because it shows the beautiful clear sunset in the distance that the trees helped make. The trees filter and put more clean air into the atmosphere. This shows that the gorgeous clouds in the photo were helped to be created by the trees. The trees are putting fresh air into the atmosphere and we need to work to keep it clean and fresh without smoke or smog.
