This picture lifts me up so much! I hope it will do the same for you if you are waiting for spring to come!

I listened to this song nonstop while working on this picture. It became the theme song for it!
It's just so fun and makes me want to go dance in the field. [link] Story behind the picture
It's really amazing how incapable I am of sticking to a concept.
I had originally planned to have this really cracked ground leading into the picture, to show a truly desolate place, leading to a beautiful field you just have to run in! There would be a rainbow there, the symbol of a promise. Great concept! But I couldn't figure out how to blend the rainbow with any sky photos. This cloud shot immediately clicked, and I threw out the old concept. It's better to throw out a bad idea than to simply go along with it for the sake of finishing what one started!
I know the tree is greatly flawed, but I worked really hard to blend everything together and to make it believable. I think this is one of my best. It feels great to finally produce something worth seeing after a lot of failures. I was right to follow my instincts. I'm keeping my original title because it still fits!
