Bloom After the Storm

Photographer's Statement:

When I look at the forest I think of their ability to adapt and over come harsh conditions. To always be able to sprout during the spring year after year despite the previous freezing winter before. Trees capability to push through troubling times and eventually bloom with color is admirable.
