The Wings Of Dawn by ladynightseduction The Wings Of Dawn by ladynightseduction
Afterwork: Bordered, sharpened, resized.


"Daedalus built wings for himself and Icarus, fashioned with feathers held together with wax. Daedalus warned his son not to fly too close to the sun, as it would melt his wings, and not too close to the sea, as it would dampen them and make it hard to fly.

They successfully flew from Crete, but Icarus grew exhilarated by the thrill of flying and began getting careless. Flying too close to the sun god Helios, the wax holding together his wings melted from the heat and he fell to his death, drowning in the sea. The Icarian Sea, where he fell, was named after him and it is said that Heracles (Hercules), who passed by, gave him burial."

I loved this story as a child. One of my first forays into mythology. The Boy Who Flew Too Close To The Sun.

Ahh I should take more of them. I used to do clouds all the time. I think I got burnt out, and recently my skies haven't been all the much to sing about. LOL. Damn clouds, I think they've got a consipracy against me going. I leave to find a good spot to shoot and when I get there, gone.

I so wanted those cloud reflections in the water too. But it was way choppy. The bird was a good focus point. :)
