Forest Angel

Sissy and I were heading back home after a wonderful walk through The Abandoned and the surrounding forests.  As we walked, I had the strangest feeling I should take some pictures just off the road--a place where we played as children.  We called it Leprechaun Valley.  There was a faery-like meadow filled with fern, Trilliums, May flowers and the perky little Johnny Jump ups.

I knew I'd caught a glimmer of something in the photograph I took of the meadow.  I showed the picture to Clytie, thinking it did look a little odd.  She agreed.

When I looked at this picture on my computer, to my astonishment I found my Forest Angel.  Can you see her there, dancing next to the moss covered snag?

Above you see a closeup--doesn't this look like a beautiful little angel with a halo?

Most unexpected!

Oooh sissie! That is so gorgeous!!! I'm so glad she posed for you - and that she wasn't afraid of the big people who were invading her forest.

She is simply breathtaking! What a wondrous photograph. I'm glad you listened to your inner self.

That is amazing! I've never gotten that blue color before. Great job! I also see several faces in the tree, next to the white blur. Over the past couple of years I've captured lots of "tree spirits" in my photos.

On Thursday, I am going to feature some of my photos like this on my blog. Thanks so much for sharing this, it is beautiful.
