Some images feel so delicate that I’m almost afraid to touch them. ‘Angel Wing’ stirs these very protective emotions in me as I imagine a beautiful bonelike wing, exquisitely detailed yet remarkably fragile.
As if poised in space and glowing with an ethereal blue aura, ‘Angel Wing’ possesses its own mystical, divine qualities. I always feel a calmness come over me when I look at this image – a quiet contemplative mood and sense of peace.
‘Angel Wing’ certainly had a touch of the divine in its creation. During the entire photo shoot, this was the only shot which captured the wing’s mysterious beauty with such clarity. Just the right amount of serendipitous lighting coupled with an almost miraculous alignment of the tiny ridges all came together for that singular moment when I took the shot. Captured in an instant and then lost, my Angel only gave me the briefest glimpse of her seraphic form.
