This is a crop of the original work. This image allows for a closer examination of the detail and meticulous care taken in selecting the hawk for addition into the sunset image that I photographed.

I captured this Mountain sunset a week ago in September at Rough Ridge on the south side of Grandfather Mountain. GFM State Park, North Carolina, USA. I was surprised to find the Autumn change in color already in motion.

I had to do quite a bit of work on this lovely hawk to get her in the right frame of mind, so to speak, for the spirit I hoped to instill into the work. So I freed her of her leg bindings and positioned her head for landing. Layering in Photoshop CC

What might it be like to free oneself of the shackles of the mind? To take wing and rise above the cares of this world? To live each moment unfettered and undeterred by the concerns of the day? To go forth with a fullness of heart, partaking of an abundant and benevolent provider? My guess is that this would be all that the word ‘liberty’ is meant to express. In sharing this work here with you, it is my dream, my hope, that you and I might know all that it is to be truly free.
