Do Not Be Afraid

By K_T  
This image tells the story of Moses parting the Red Sea when he says 'Do Not Be Afraid'.

There is much to be afraid of in life, but we have to keep going. No matter what we face and what stands in our way, there is always hope.

Sometimes I wonder if my photography makes or breaks me, maybe one day I shall reach a conclusion, but for now I keep doing what I do and you should too =)

The image: The scene is built from seascapes, two beaches in a V shape merged, the sea is then bent up and round then mirrored. Waves are added to the top and bottom of the curve to hide the seams and the water run off is from a fountain at the Trafford Centre. Moses himself was a character dressed up at Whitby Goth weekend, I had about 2 minutes to take some images of him in the church graveyard. It was very windy that day, so I asked him to brave the storm and stand into the wind for me and worked it to my advantage.
