Wood between the Worlds

This is a Photoshop composite put together with layers and masking from Big Sticks and Water and Meditation.

I was inspired by the Wood between the Worlds from C.S. Lewis’s The Magician’s Nephew in the Narnia series. This forest is a sort of sleepy no-place that exists outside of any world. When you look into any pond in the forest at first you see nothing at all except ordinary water and pond reflections. But as you look more closely, and possibly are sucked down into the pond, a whole new world starts to become apparent.

Where does one “world” end and the next “world” begin? I used mirror rotations and image combinations to suggest the possibility of infinite depths to both the pond and the forest.
