Beauty Up Above   by Doty

When I was a small child my best friend was my beautiful white horse “Beauty”. Although I have had many thoughts of her over the years, I had a very vivid dream the other night of my dear old childhood friend. She was just as beautiful, and she was up in Heaven enjoying grazing on the clouds. As I woke in the morning I had to put this special moment in a picture. I took a picture of this beautiful horse and some beautiful clouds then combined the two, to capture the moment in my dream.
