May God fill your soul with light, peace, and joy this holiday season, and in the coming years. Merry Christmas to you, dear friends! Nathan Smith ........................................................................................ This image combines a stock.xchng photo (the trees), with one of LaPurr's lovely fractals (which I've warped to give the sky it's windblown look), and coloring and stars I've painted. Thanks, Kat, for allowing me to use your fractal. This is my Christmas gift to you, dear friends. If you wish, you may use it as a Christmas card design. Again, Merry Christmas.

This is heartbreakingly lovely Nathan. I'm sure Kat was thrilled to see her fractal used in such a beautiful creation ! Thank you for this beautiful gift & may your home be filled with peace, joy laughter and love this holiday season & the rest of the coming year as well.

Putting your pictures in my favorites is the highest honor I can give you. If I do not get to your pictures as soon as you post them, I apologize. I try. Also if I do not respond for awhile it doesn't mean I'm ignoring you, it just means I'm really tied up with school & life.

Good image design. May I suggest that you flip it horizontally for a wallpaper so th icons can be on the left and not cover the subject. Fine creation.

If I may ... ever, ever so humbly suggest an alternative title to your spiritual masterpiece here ... it would be this ...

"It's a Wonderful Sight."

Alllll puns and play on words intended and offered with a heart that is that little bit lighter ... having had the benefit of seeing your image here and then reading the accompanying narrative.

Thank you. :o))

I would like to extend my wishes to you and yours for a safe and wonderful holiday as well.

It is because of members such as yourself, that this 'site' has indeed for me, become a soft place to fall.
