Honorable Mention

Photographer's Statement:

¨Healthy tree healthy me¨ reminds me of this small beautiful stump of a tree looking like an eye, will grow with my home in my backyard by the rocks. When I study this photograph I’m forced to notice and wonder how all of the different textures, marks, and bumps were blessed by insects, nature, and the world around us. Which proves that the ecosystem will forever work little miracles around all of its corners from big to small.  Proving to us how special and how significant everything is to be here right now.
