Developing Sweetness

Photographer's Statement:

When I look at the forest I think of all the wonderous things trees provide for us. The air we breathe, countless memories, and various amounts of fruits. The picture I took is of a developing plumb tree, soon to produce a delicious sweet snack for everyone to enjoy.
