Photographer's Statement:

This photograph shows the way nature forms and adapts so uniquely and beautifully. It depicts a large, curved tree hovering over a group of dying trees and bushes. Nature is very beautiful and fragile whether live or dead, and should be valued and appreciated. I hope it teaches others to appreciate not only life, but also the beauty of death.
