What Makes Stress Slip Away

Honorable Mention

Photographer's Statement:

Every time I need to escape the stresses of school, work, and COVID-19 I look to the forest; fitting well with the theme this year. Early each morning the sun comes through the trees perfectly on our property. The smell, sounds, and even the way the trees sway is beautiful.
