Love the tree. New discovery, or did you know about it already? I also like the worm view angle of the shot. And, of course, welcome back. Long time no see. :)

We just found it walking through the woods, it was actually Shauntia's idea to shoot in it. :)

Even if you are doing this less and less, it is nice to see you doing it when you can, Melanie. :) You do really remind me of a wood nymph or a wood sprite here. What I wanna know is were you ever cold when you did this shoot? It looks like you were kinda cold, though I could be wrong.

Wow... love how your lines seem to fold into the tree itself, almost as if you were an extension of the root system.  Yes, the dryad unfolding herself from the heart of the tree...  ;-)

Beautiful work!
