“Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.”
~Hermann Hesse

Composed in Photoshop. Swan was photographed in Burlingham, New York, USA, background was removed.
Two layers of fog and cloud photographs photographed in Cragsmoor, NY, USA were combined with scanned canvases for textures.
1 background image courtesy of Lenbem-Anna
All layers were treated with Topaz filters, and Mystical Lighting filters, blending, modes, color adjustments, opacity adjustments, and selective burning.
Flood filter on multiple merged layers was used, all layers then treated again with various editing effects and color adjustments.

love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
