Pan seeks woodland nymphs, hoping for a little of that frenzied activity that drives the bone-numbing cold completely out of the body and mind.

No-one told him Sub&Sin were there a week or so earlier and made off with all those hot, fun-loving, little nymphettes.

Pan's just going to have to accept that his winter will be spend alone, hibernating in a hollow tree until the bud-burst of Spring...poor consolation!

This is from another world Mal, love it, just stared at it
I think I am going to christen this technique Malography! Very effective image Mal, dreamy.

Stunning vision Mal. Very creative.
Hi Mal, I think an apology may be in order, i realised as soon as I clicked my earlier comment that I had made a faux pas! As you spotted, my motive for christening your technique Malography could be misinterpreted by those with a GCSE in English!

But of course MAL is an acronym for Masterful Alternative Light-ology!

How's that for a bit of creeping!

Can't think of anything funny to say, so I'll just tell you it's good smile
The human form is dwarfed by the sweeping verticals of the trees - it's symbolic and mysterious.

Wow. Might have to say it again. Wow. i know there are a few great blurred poplar type shots floating around at the moment but this one is exquisite. Apart from one or two others of yours with a lot of meaning to them this one would almost be my favourite of yours. The type of photo that makes me want to take pictures. Transcendental.

Tis is gobsmackingly good Mal.
When I see a shot like this, I just want to get the vaseline out, lol.
Was this shot taken at the same time as beakerSt's inside the blue spaceship shot?
11/10 Mal. Superb.
p.s. Is that Julian Clary in the shot? They seem to have a kinky demeanor about them grin

You use vaseline to improve your dream experience? The results are excellent again.

There is something eerie about it, like a spaceship is somewhere closeby.
