15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Twilight Ruins with Butterflies

While working on an image I took of a sunset in the clouds, I created this background image which felt like standing in a ruined building looking out into a spooky woods at twilight. The colorful butterflies add an eeriness to the scene and the woods seem to have eyes peering out. Perhaps the tree in the distance is my destination, but I am as reluctant to leave this place and enter the woods as I am to stay.
