Thank you all for commenting. Thanks again Vicki, I'm not sure when the project will be finished, this year I hope. I have multiple projects going on at the same time so this one is moving slowly. If you're interested below is the draft of the text for this image. "Returning from my trip to the edge of the world, I found myself to be hopelessly lost. Supplies were running low and Wolf was limping badly. His front leg was broken and swollen, I could see his strength was failing. I didn't know what to do, he was too heavy for me to carry. We came upon this bridge, surely a sign of civilization at last, and I grabbed a quick shot. Wolf, in spite of this injuries, insisted of going first. He was determined to protect me to the last. As we crossed the bridge he seemed to get stronger and soon he was running at full speed toward the light. Just before he disappeared into the light he stopped, looked back at me and barked a single time. Then he was gone. The light was blinding, almost as though it were at the end of a tunnel. I tired to run after wolf but my backpack and cameras slowed my progress. A voice came to me that said "Turn back son, it isn't yet time for you to join us here." The bridge vanished and I found myself standing alone on the trail. Funny, the voice sounded a lot like my Dad. Wolf, my friend and guardian, was gone and I would have to finish my journey alone."

Had to come back and "walk through" this one again, Doug. There is indeed a mystical face back there - and buildings around the edge? Too cool. Let us know when the book comes out - please!

This is very creative. Great blending of fantasy and reality. Well done.

Thank you all for your kind comments. This is one of the images I'm going to use to document "my trip to the edge of the world." A series I'm putting together in book form with a story. There are a few other samples in my gallery here. Best Wishes, Doug

WOW!! great effects.

This is brilliant! I can see a face in between the clouds and bridge. It gets more fascinating the more I look at it.
Guest - Apr 11, 2006 08:23 PM EDT
Great composition. That is all you have to do is walk towards the white light.
Guest - Apr 11, 2006 06:00 PM EDT
Yeah! This is rather mind-boggling, Doug. Extremely effective. I love the kaleidoscope imageof the background - now, just where that path lead to - ask 10 people and you will get that many or more answers! I like the evocativeness of the whole here
