Image Details:

My husband and me were traveling going home up north in Minnesota and the sun was about to set at the horizon of South Dakota. I saw this dramatic light and lone tree. At the middle of nowhere where the last tree standing...what a beautiful world we have but we abused it so much. We cut the birds habitat to serve our greed for money, we called it horizon to horizon wonder why we lost the source of our water too. We turn our land into desert. Hope we realize that our money is nothing. We cannot restore what we lost.
