I took these photos of the Opawaho-Heathcote River because they show the beautiful parts of the river and the life that lives in it. I took these photos of two different parts of the river. Both parts I pass on my way to school and it makes me happy to see it. I like looking at the flowing glistening water.

My photos show two trees connecting the river to the sun and moon. The trees are getting water from the river, the river is
getting shade from the trees, and the sun is giving the trees life.
