Photographer's Statement:

I took this photo in September while camping around bumblebee in the Coeur D’Alene area. I thought that the colors of the trees and grass changing and how still the water looked was beautiful and the perfect indication that the seasons were changing. Scenery such as this is so calming to be around any time of the year.
