The Beginning of A New Life

Photographer's Statement:

When I look into the forest I see beauty. The beauty of the forest is always amazing and fascinating. The forest is full of life and it’s full of beauty. With my photo, I tried to find the beauty of a new life, even when it’s small. Everything can be beautiful and extremely interesting.
