Photographer's Statement:

The Yellow colors of the leaves in the fall grabbed my attention. Being from Colorado one of the most colorful states, it reminded me of home, and how Idaho is also my home in some ways. This brought me back and this image shows picking one thing out from a crowd that’s all the same thing.
