The original shot was captured high up on the Quantock Hills in Somerset, and this was blended with a 'burning sky'...

You have created a fine image here Dave full of vivid colours. I think the fencing between the trees look like spiders webs.

Fairy-tale silhouettes and a burning sky. Just begs for a silhouetted witch or some such other creature of the night. I really like this Dave, both as an atmospheric piece in it's own right, and also as the basis of a more fanciful composite.

This is just superb. The shapes along the bottom make an excellent picture on their own but with the added drama in the sky it's truly magnificent.

This reminds me of the images used in the Joan Aitken stories by Jan Pienkowski from when I was a child (not Meg & Mog!!)

Very vivid.
