Wings of Crystal by Holly Kempe
Clear

“Clouds of insects danced and buzzed in the golden autumn light, and the air was full of the piping of the song-birds. Long, glinting dragonflies shot across the path, or hung tremulous with gauzy wings and gleaming bodies.”
~ Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

    great catch, was there any rainbow in his wings in the original or did you take it in B+W?

  • Hi Brittany – thank you for your comment…I converted the original to b&w…the sun was quiet bright so sorry to say I didn’t catch a rainbow! :)
