“It was a still afternoon--the golden light was lingering languidly among the upper boughs, only glancing down here and there on the purple pathway and its edge of faintly sprinkled moss: an afternoon in which destiny disguises her cold awful face behind a hazy radiant veil, encloses us in warm downy wings, and poisons us with violet-scented breath."
~ George Eliot ~

Dawn, this is stunning. How do you get the black background on these shots? (Do you photoshop out the background or have another way to creat such contrast?)

Jenny, the area was already dark. I adjusted the levels and contrast and the lighting to get it this way.
