Somthing a bit different today Smile

My trip to the Brecon Beacons on Saturday included taking pictures of these magnificent trees, all green and almost glowing with moss and lichen .
They just seemed to be crying out for some magical treatment, so I added the doorway taken from inside St. Konan's Kirk in Loch Awe,Scotland, and some extra tree roots and twisted branches from my stock collection.

Hope you like it Smile

It's a sad thing that work of this standard doesn't pay the bills. Artwork is severely undervalued in our society, and work like this should have a high commercial value.
It is great to see the original shot. Most inspiring.
