The Emerald Forest

By AngieLatham    
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

Thankyou so much everyone, I really appreciate your compliments on my abilities! This is what I love doing best, being out of work allows me to have the time and energy to creat artwork....just wish it could pay the bills! Fingers crossed one day..... Smile

It's great to see the original shot, you really do have some imagination and vision to put it all together seemlessly.

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.

Love it Angie, but I think you need to get rid of the back window of the kirk! Swap it for the inside of a cave or something. Wink
