Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.

Below is the original photo used to create this image. I saw this beauty of a sunset on my way home from work and actually pulled over, got out, walked two blocks and crossed a bridge to take this pic. Ah, the sacrifices I make for my art… No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
