That is all an angel is: an idea of God. ~Meister Eckhart


An angel makes more noise with her light than she does with her wings. This angel, which looks powerful to me, didn't have much light around her due to the cloudy weather; however, I bet she is quite a force on the soul! On a dreary day, a trip to the cemetery seemed appropriate..but when doesn't it? Yes, it is slightly creepy to others but I enjoy a peaceful cemetery. This angel is one the "strongest" looking angels that I have come across. I used a new "technique" in my small arsenal of photography tricks to achieve the look here. I tried to capitalize on the clouds to add drama rather than to avoid the rainy day.

This angel is fascinating...you're right, she is powerful and strong. Where did you find the part about making more noise with her light than her wings. That is a great statement! Cementaries definitely eminate peace.

On Google look up Theophany..("appearance /showing of God") the appearance of a deity to a human, or a divine disclosure..

Interesting image...are you going to reveal your "technique"? I like the peacefulness in cemeteries, too...nothing creepy about that! :-)
