A prayer for the world

Let the rain come and wash away the ancient grudges, the bitter hatreds held and nurtured over generations. Let the rain wash away the memory of the hurt, the neglect. Then let the sun come out and fill the sky with rainbows. Let the warmth of the sun heal us wherever we are broken. Let it burn away the fog so that we can see each other clearly. So that we can see beyond labels, beyond accents, gender or skin color...(to be continued)

An absoluteley wonderful process on this Don.

Yes the situation for the world needs prayers, and all the things you said above need to happen but they won't happen thru any peace treaty or the failed promises from every politician that has ever been or will be in office, or any humanitarian effort. It will only come when........

"in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite." Dan 2:44

Then we will hear...........

"a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Rev. 21:3,4

love the shot. but there is something re contrast(?) I'm not sure about...

I really like this scene, great composition and all the subtle differences in colour work very well. There's just something with respect to contrast or the highlight / shadow balance, seems a bit too much on my display.

Beautiful earthly colors. All in all a pleasing picture to look at.

Your photo and the one by theo "Happy Holidays" are a briliant attempt to have us reflect on what this season is all about. It is unfortunate that feelings of good will don't prevail always, but we must keep trying musn't we? Well presented dee. In respect. george

A wonderful image Don. I like the way they fill the screen and the colors and detail. I feel I could reach in and pull one out. I like the high contrast. The prayer is lovely and appropriate for all season.

I'm a bit like Michael, I love this too but wonder about the contrast. But then I say to myself if the contrast were any different then it wouldn't be the same image.

I appreciate the thematics, and do like the coloring here.
