Title: The Defiant Skeletons of Flooded Taiga

About the Photo:

The skeletons of long dead spruce tress stand defiant and resilient to the rising lake waters that have taken their lives. The scarred and wrinkled tree trunks with chaotic branches impart a feeling of cold isolation and the sense of loneliness and desperation many of us have experienced in 2020 and now 2021. The snow cleans the scene making the images both stark and beautiful.
