Photographer's Statement:

I took this photo while walking home from a small event of mine. It was an amazing day and I was dancing down the street to my “Summer Songs” playlist. Music and nature are the most important parts of my life. I feel most like myself when listening to folk songs up in the forested mountains. Trees are beautiful works of art and an essential part of our lives. We need to protect them to save our planet from climate change and air pollution.
