Wow! I love the composition and dramatic lighting in this image! The horizontal streaks and perpendicular vertical lines of the surrounding scenery are powerfully stunning. And the vibrant red highlights of his cloak and staff add a wonderful flash of color.
I love the dualistic nature of this image - at first glance, the image has this stark, dramatic feel to it, but as I look longer, there is a wonderful lightness and warmth that draws me in. It's enchanting and captivating. Brilliant work!
