Photographer's Statement:

When I look at my photograph, I think about how blind the world is towards the importance of trees. Our love and appreciation for them is slowly disappearing, much alike the branches in my photograph, because of this ignorant warp state of mind. We must look around and realize not only a tree’s beauty, but mother nature itself, for it is the basis of human life.
