A special post on my personal winter holiday, December 10th - Angel Day.
Look closely - can you see the Madonna and Child? Several Angels?
We didn’t see them at all when we took the picture.
We were literally racing against the light as it swiftly moved across the face of a stunning frozen ice sculpture which had formed from a little water fall on Mt. Hood.
We shot until we ran out of film - beyond running out of film! This image is number “37” on a roll of 36 frames.
And the figures might never have been noticed after the film was developed except that this one image accidentally slipped out of the packet of prints and fell on the floor as I was preparing to file the set away in our personal files.
I picked up the print and suddenly - there they were! Clear as a bell! A dark blue Madonna and Child standing out from a choir of sparkling white angels.
Some viewers see two angels. Some have pointed out as many as 7! How many do you see?
