There is beauty all around us

Photographer's Statement:

One beautiful morning I was out walking around and then I looked towards the ground. I stared in wonder and then something caught my eye and it was a  patch of leaves and I decide to take a picture of it. The picture turned out really well. It made me think that there is so much nature around us.
