Thanks everyone. Nice to get recognition for something I did years ago. I do not do much digital art, but I do love to create special scenes like this from otherwise ordinary images. #11474730

Absolutely magnificent Gary. Where was it? I know it's a Secret Garden but would love to go there and dream..... #11474929

Thanks Elizabeth. The Laurel trees are in Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland, California hills, the steps are from Rock City, Georgia, and the garden in the rear is in Piedmont, California. #11474966
