Light in the darkness

Photographer's Statement:

No matter what life gives you, you will always travel through dark places on your path and there will always be light on the other end. In our world now we are facing many issues with losing our forests and this is a dark spot in our journey, but as time goes on we are continuing to improve and restore our forests to help repair the damage that’s been done.
