Trees II:The Faces of Winter by Bunny Clarke

Trees II:The Faces of Winter by 

In the old legends and stories told to me, the faces of winter were of ice, cold and snow. Cold was always the largest face of winter and could be the most dangerous. When I heard the story, it was always on a cold and blustery night, next to the fireside all wrapped in blankets. I’m not sure if the stories were for my comfort or my Grandmother’s. :o)

Created in Fractal Explorer and Photoshop. Image taken from a picture of a statue I took. Five layers and the use of AutoFX Mystical Lights for the misty look and Flaming Pear for the ice below. This was inspired by a comment my honey made about seeing a woman in the trees of my fractal. You can guess which part yourself. ;o)

Camera used for the statue: Canon PowerShot SX10IS at Huntington Library Gardens, San Marino, CA, USA

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)

    cold drains energy .. snow/ice hold you there so cold can do it’s damage wearing you down …
    well done Bunny … I work in a refrigerator all day 38-40F … cold is my enemy who I know all too well … this is a wonderful piece (big smile)

  • I agree with you completely. That is why I live in California instead of Colorado. I just cannot take the cold any more. And I don’t have your excuse. :o)

    Upon first view, the strength and ambience of the composition startled me. It has a ghostly feel. Great work. :)

  • I guess it could be looked as ghostly. I was thinking more in the spirit sense of how winter comes. Interesting interpretation. Thank you very much Josette. :o)
