Photographer's Statement:

Everything in our World works together in an ecosystem. The trees, the dirt, the bugs, the water, the animals. On a peaceful afternoon I was walking down to Kiwanis Park to photograph some of the magnificent trees. The Spokane River, which flows through the park, created a beautiful reflection of the trees on the other side. Our ecosystem forms a wonderful environment to keep us healthy and to play in. Citizens can enjoy a quiet afternoon having fun down at the park, while reflecting on how great trees are and the many things trees do for us. The forest helps us stay healthy while enjoying our amazing planet Earth.
