Photographer's Statement:

Growing up in Idaho, it’s common to see Pine’s, Junipers, and Rocky Mountain Maples as well as Mahogany’s. The trees in the picture are from Pebble Creek Ski area in South Bowl where my family has been skiing during my whole life. Trees have always had an importance for me because they are an organism that brings peace and carry immense beauty. Also spending much time in Michigan where the trees take in much in the city’s noise, they show how import they are for everyday life.
