Rise Up, O Dragon!

Dragon
Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Rise up, O dragon!
Light our way with holy fire
in the darkest night.

Poetry is the art of substantiating shadows, and of lending existence to nothing.
- Edmund Burke



May the sunlight and shadows always be with you!

This is a mythical creature, a desert dragon awakening after a deep sleep - with a hint of majesty!

MMT ... this is sending shivers up my spine ... the colours are absolutely beautiful .. the textures perfection ... and "lending existence to nothing" .. that is what we do?
Love this !

Hope it doesn't breathe fire and burn the place down. It's too purty.

Beautiful photo. You always find the most amazing objects to photograph.
I can see the dragon rising up to challenge what or whom ever approaches.
Well Done!
