Illustration Friday: Hollow -

"Lonesome Dove Surveying the Hollow"
digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
I went way back in the photo archives to get today's image for Illustration Friday and the theme of hollow. This little hole in the wood was always a rewarding view and all I had to do was look out the window. I miss that place.

There is sadness in this pic, or maybe I'm sad today. Could be.

Reminds me of late autumn, the moment leaves are gone, trees are bare and coldness is coming nearer.

It frightens me, the coming of winter, although I shouldn't be thinking of it now.

Well, I'm sad today.

The original photograph at the foundation of this piece was taken in winter. I, like you, begin to feel the sadness of that approaching season as soon as the summer solstice passes. (sigh!) ... :|

Rui Sousa:
Thanks for this encouragement, Rui.

Coreopsis:

I kid you not, my heart skipped a beat when this came on the screen. I love this, its like a rainy winters day in some far away peaceful place...I can almost feel the mist!

Thank you, Indi! :)

Lisa Sarsfield:
As I've mentioned, the original photograph is a winter scene. There always seemed to be mistiness there even though much of it was due to the almost always gray background sky. :)
