So in this phase the foreground is getting a lot of attention. I wanted to give the feeling that we are nestled down in the bank of Fairy Lantern flowers and that the glen is so shadowed that it feels a bit like twilight in here.

And then all the reflected light in the water... that drove me nearly crazy! Next up, the flowers get their day!
