What a striking, powerful image. I have no superlatives grand enough for it.

Patricia....I just ran across this beautiful winning photo of yours.......it stopped me for a second look......the staircase looks old and unused but at the same time it takes me to a place that is "enchanted" such as in a fairy tale.......it makes me want to see what's at the top of the stairs.....nice work and congrats on being a winner.......Tori
