Shadow-bride by MirachRavaiaWhen ground becomes sky by MirachRavaiaSharp and Horny by MirachRavaia
Kaldir by MirachRavaia Dead MarshesOnce armies proud,
their enemies vile
Once armies proud,
now they rest in a mire
Side by side lie
noble Elf with a Man
Side by side lie
Orcs from a dark den
In dreamless sleep
Forever they'll rest
In dreamless sleep
Hosts of East, hosts of West
The waters cold
Are their murky grave
The waters cold
Above soldiers brave
Dead faces in water
Some noble and sad
Dead faces in water
And mud is their bed
Cold and pale faces,
Both evil and fair
Cold and pale faces
With weed in their hair
All foul, all rotting
Lit by corpse-lights
All foul, all rotting,
Fell barrow-wights
You should not look in
Or you'll lose your wit
You should not look in
When the candles are lit

G’day Tea, :iconteaphotography: :wave: :highfive:

This is certainly an impressive and varied array of images and having then on a blue background presents really well. :nod: As usual you have excelled yourself with the presentation and layout. :wow: It’s taking me a little while to get through them all and following the link to many of the artists galleries. Although it is a task I find to be most enjoyable. :excited: Also thank you very much for including an image from my gallery it is most appreciated. :hug:

Best regards,
