Death is an Angel

Death is an angel with two faces:
To us he turns
A face of terror, blighting all things fair;
The other burns
With glory of the stars, and love is there.

-Theodore Chickering Williams

Some of you might remember when I submitted this with text, but I decided to resubmit one without the text and offer it as a print.

Flame created with Apophysis.

Thank you everyone for your continued support and for all of the love you've shown! I hope you will visit my gallery and like what you find there as well!

Unfortunately, too many people have hotlinked to the original text version I had up on my site so I've removed it. Sorry, that's the breaks.

It's such a beautiful fractal, and light is balanced so well with the smoky shadow. Excellent.
