The Threats of Life...

Honorable Mention

Photographer's Statement:

Even trees can be put through difficult situations. I can relate to this picture in life because these trees were strong and standing their ground even when it was hard. The trees on the right may have lost the fight, but the ones on the left are still standing even after a life-threatening situation.
