Photographer's Statement:

This photo holds a special place in my heart. I captured it during one of my afternoon bike rides. For me, bike riding is a source of pure joy and freedom, especially when I feel trapped. I particularly enjoy riding on trails surrounded by trees, as they fill me with a sense of life and movement. Trees are especially valuable to our society, as they provide us with clean air and sustain life. They create perfect ecosystems that enable the earth to thrive.
