The Enchanted Forest

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Carol with a friend named Nancy I. Carol was excited because there were some late afternoon thundershowers. She was hoping that the Enchanted Forest would turn magical, which it sometimes does after summer thunderstorms. She invited Nancy I to come along on this trip to the Enchanted Forest.
Nancy I was so excited to see all of the magic! She had never seen the forest look so beautiful!!

The magic also brought some of the beautiful wildlife out of hiding.........even the youngsters came out to play!!!!!

But of course, Mama was not far behind!!

It turned out to be a beautiful evening in the Enchanted Forest. Fairytales do come true!! *wink wink*

  1. So beautiful it almost doesn't look real!!
    I love mama and baby. I do believe the baby
    was performing for us!! What a great night.
    I can't wait for our next magical mystery

  2. Hi Nancy,
    I know what you mean about it not looking real! That's why I put the Fairytale spin on it, because to me, the first few shots look like something out of a Fairytale! I didn't do much processing to those first two shots. I just darkened up some of the shadows. On the other hand, I DID do some processing to the deer shots, to try to make them look a little bit dreamy and colorful to go along with the whole fairytale idea. Don't know if I succeeded in what I was trying to accomplish, but it was a lot of fun!
    Yup, looking forward to our next adventure! :-)

  3. Beautiful Carol! And how sweet is that fawn?? Yes, enchanted indeed.

  4. Thanks Tracy. The fawn was just too precious!!!
