You wonder how these things begin. Well, this begins with a glen. It begins with a season which, for want of a better word we may as well call- September. It begins in a forest where the woodchucks woo, and the leaves wax green, and vines intertwine like lovers; try to see it. not with your eyes, for they are wise, but see it with your ears: the cool green breathing of the leaves. And hear it with the inside of your hand: the soundless sound of shadows flicking light. Celebrate sensation. Recall that secret place. You've been there, you remember: That special place where once- Just once- in your crowded sunlit lifetime, you hid away in shadow from the tyranny of time. That spot beside the clover where someone's hand held your hand and love was sweeter than the berries, or the honey, or the stinging taste of mint. It is September- before a rainfall- a perfect time to be in love.

El Gallo - The Fantasticks (my favorite musical ever) written by Harvey Jones and Tom Schmidt

This has 2 xero filters (moonlight, ultraviolet) and I have to admit, the spiderweb is a brush I found. ;~)

Fantastic (no pun intended) combination of elements to create something beautiful.

Sweet mercy - this is too gorgeous. Brush or not - the spider web in combo with the grass is breath taking.

Wow, I really like the dreamy feel of this shot. Goes great with the words. I thought that was a reall web until you said it was a brush. That is awesome. Yeah, what are those filters you talking about. Well you did a fantastic job.

Oh Judy! This is so beautiful. Exquisite. Such amazing detail, yet so soft and dreamy

Ok. . .I'm always behind the curve. What are xero filters ???? If they contribute to making photos this beautiful, I WANT them! :)
