This is a digital manipulation of a shot I took of an icy tree in a meadow. This is my first try at this artistic rendering, so I’m not really sure if I could recreate this again. I played around until I felt it looked just right. I am kind of proud of this and think it is quite beautiful. I hope I’m right and you enjoy!
Inspiration for this image was imagining a Dryad spirit encased in this lone icy tree separted from all others of his kind. Even when I took the original image this is what went through my mind. I hope I was able to capture this feeling and bring it to life.
Original image was taken in an open meadow in Tompkins County NY.
