Twisted roots

Photographer's Statement:

My favorite part of this photo is how complicated it is. The roots looked so beautiful to me after it rained, because it made them look shiny, and it looked so amazing when I made it black and white because it can make the roots look tangled. I took this photo on April 4th, 2024 at the Boise river.
