A splash of color

Photographer's Statement:

When I look into the forest I see a lot of colors. In the spring when the flowers are blooming and the trees are growing leaves the forests can be a really beautiful place to be. When I look in to the forest I see an abundance of flowers and plants that add a splash of color to the forests.
