"To Defeat the Darkness you will need more than just a fine bow" the Ice Bear said in parting, "you will need courage, integrity and faith, but with these, in time, I believe you will prevail in your Quest......"

and the one after that:
Smilla by DriPoint

This was my entry into the "Defeat the Darkness" Contest fav.me/d7jnzg4

Update 28/05/14 - I came second in the contest and am really delighted with that!!

My image is totally unconnected but the title comes from the English translation of a great 1992 book by Danish author Peter Høeg called "Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow". Smilla was an invented name whose origin is explained by the author in the book. It was made into a film in 1997.


Really great stock images, many thanks to each of you

I spend a lot of time and work really hard to generate original new imagery from the kindly donated stock images and so I would not appreciate any use, redistribution, modification, cropping, tubing or any other corruption of my creations in any way without first gaining my written consent. Doing so violates my copyright & may well also infringe upon the model & respective stock photographers copyrights or terms of use.
