Frozen In Time

Photographer's Statement:

This image was taken in McCall at a choir retreat and at that retreat, for the first time in a while, I felt like nothing was moving a million miles a minute like it normally is, hence the title. I felt like I grew emotionally and got to a healthy place among the trees in McCall, and I hope this image will relay that peace and tranquility to all those who see it.
