Amongst the dead

Edition of 20

In the parking lot of Kaaterskill Falls in upstate New York, I found myself yet again enamored by the trees in which I was surrounded. While I loved them and knew I wanted to craft a photograph using them as the main subject, it took me all day to figure out how to best do such a thing. It wasn't until I came back from photographing the waterfall that I stumbled upon this scene, not far from where the car was parked. The small sapling just barely creeping into the bottom of the frame shows the perseverance of nature, how it will always find a way to overcome adversity and strive. Even though the trees behind the sapling shade it from the sun most times of the day, the sapling still holds onto hope that it can grow to be just as tall, just as strong, even if it isn't meant to be that way. It's a lesson we can all learn from.
