Lonely Mountain – abstract of a leaf

This is another portrait from the same leaf I used in my last photograph Entreaty. I have been intrigued by the interaction of the two main forms within this: the swirling energy to the left and the isolated peak on the right. As I worked on it, these shapes reminded me a little of the story of Smaug the dragon and the Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit. Crazy, I know, but there’s no predicting what you’ll see when working with abstracts.. which is why I love them.
