One of Simon Gudgeon's Sculptures by the Lakes, the Bird of Happiness, transported by magic to one of our night photography sessions.
If I'd been there at night it could have all been done in one shot but needs must & all that.
The digital manipulation relates to the blending of two straight images using a bit of lighting trickery to produce the 'flames'
Fabulous place & amazing sculptures any time of day or night.

Have to vote for this, I've just been listening to Stravinsky's Firebird Suite on Radio 3.

A super piece of magical trickery! Well crafted and such a great idea.

Thanks for the vs & cs, It's so long since I've uploaded anything I thought it would slip past unnoticed in the dead of night.Grin
The Firebird Suite is a great combination Moira.
The magic flames were courtesy of Diana and her bag of lighting effects.

looks like a great sculpture, great to develop the story a little further.
