Thank you everyone! So pleased that you are really liking this creation!

The Path is from one I did a month or two ago called "Peaceful Pathways", (when I did my bear series). My face I shot a few months ago...ran it through curves. (Of course! What else?!).

Karen, Layer work can be very difficult. I could never take all the credit. My time here at BP has been invaluable. The help I have received has been amazing from others who share my passion for photography. The unsung hero's know who they are.

We all help each other. I am so grateful for this.

Thanks everyone for all that you said!

-Laura

Ron...This trail is near Lake Louise. In the backwoods at a more private Lake. I will steer you guys in the right direction once you leave base camp! :)

I took one look at this and didn't see a spirit but a beautiful fairy queen guarding this deep, magical woods and remembered reading a poem:

Come follow me, follow me,
You fairy elves that be,
and circle round this green,
come follow me, your Queen.
Hand in hand let's dance around
For this place is - Fairy Ground.
~Anonymous~

Fairy Queen, definitely! As always, Laura, amazing and creative fantasy work..your mind is always churning and we all get to benefit from the beautiful end results!

Pom, you've earned all the enthusiastic responses to this sweet creation.
I love the version of Frac you used (as in the bear images), and the soft colors, too.
And there is a sort of symbiosis here: you are the forest's spirit, and the spirit of the forest is IN you. Does that make sense?
Regardless, this is another fine example of the creativity that develops in your Digital Darkroom.

Mary, your comments mean so much to me. They are always so kind and inspirational. You enter into an image and feel around in the heart of things emerging with it's deeper meanings! I love doing this, too. This way we can see into the heart of the artist. If I ever meet you in person I would LOVE going to an art gallery with you and hearing what the paintings and pieces say to you! What fun this would be!

Thank you so much!

Hi D.P., D.P., K.K. and R.R! HA! That was fun to type. (Wouldn't be able to type it 5 times FAST however!!!)

I sure appreciate you coming to be my cheering section!

SSSKiki, I knew you would especially be thrilled! Is it still your desk top BG??? :D If it is, you must have made this happen because of all the good vibes! (Thanks MSS!)

FOLKS BP's very own Ron McEwan was just here with WONDERFUL wife Shirley and CUTE dog OSCAR. We had them ALL AFTERNOON! :) !!! Now they are headed straight into HEAVEN. (Banff!) So thrilled for them!

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN! EACH ONE HERE!
