When winter passed, she came again,
And her song released the sudden spring,
Like rising lark, and falling rain,
And melting water bubbling.
He saw the elven-flowers spring
About her feet, and healed again
He longed by her to dance and sing
Upon the grass untroubling."
~Excerpt from writing by JRR Tolkien

Today temps are rising into the 60’s after a week of sub-zero temps…alas, it feels like Sudden Spring!

Composed in Photoshop with layers, photographic images, stock images, textures, filters, adjustments, and effects.
Background image was Photographed in the Catskill Mountains of New York, USA…two rocks in a frozen stream.
Flood filters were used as image was in stages.

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