I entered this image into the Victorian Epsom Professional Photography Awards at AIPP and won a Silver Award. The image was taken during my last trip to New Zealand and it was only by chance i saw this ancient tree hanging on for it's life, perched atop the hill. I wonder what makes it hang on when it could quite easily let go and find peace. Such is life for us all. A struggle but one we don't give up on. I love this image as it makes me think about our fragile hold on life.
