Earth Day EPA 2008 photo contest winner Richard Burkart enjoys the environment.

Winning the Enjoying the Environment category: "On this spring day, my wife and I were enjoying the environment and beauty of Battle Creek River. I find it extremely interesting that this photo was taken within four blocks from the heart of Battle Creek, Michigan. Sometimes we can find true beauty and enjoy nature real close to home or in our own backyard. The reason I chose this scene was of the reflection of the trees and natural framing of the picture in this location."
