"Landscape Portraits"

The North  

We find ourselves, soaring through the cold, stabbing air, whipping violently while we cease to shield our eyes and find the warmth.

And the North, with flashes of fire, bursts forth from the darkness.

Twilight whispers softly to us, telling the secrets of a greater world that helps reveal our place.   So far from home, the landscape portraits light and line the way through the halls and show us their home.
