Beautiful Changes

First Place

Photographer's Statement:

Mushrooms symbolize change and transformation which made me think about how nature changes with the seasons. As the seasons change nature changes with it. Each season has its own beauty, all the plants go into dormancy and come out of it during the different seasons and the changes are noticeable and beautiful. Seeing the seasons change makes me feel happy and peaceful.
