    Stunning- both compelling and for me a little scary- what is down the path? Do I really want to know?? Nice work!

  • Oooh, I like that. Thank you for your comment and favorite!

    Nicely captured. In contrast to the threatening clouds in the sky, the lighting in the path looks warm and magical.

  • Thank you for that observation! That’s what I was going for.

    Very macbre…just curious, how’d you manage to avoid getting lens flare?

  • For some reason, it wasn’t a problem… There was a little weird light I photoshopped out but it wasn’t a flare…
