Illusive Flood

Where do you go when the world splits?
Do you find a beginning or end to it?
Among verdant boughs budding jest
An illusive flood through optic glass

  24. ‘An illusive flood through optic glass’ what a great line Adam! really illustrates this image – and what a great photograph you take! The optical illusion in the pic is almost seamless – great:)

  25. Hi Lynda! The near seamlessness is my favorite aspect of the pic. (Props to Canon for making great cameras). Hope to take plenty more photos in the next few weeks, with a couple of surprises. TY
