The photo above is the featured photo for December 2013. Here photographer Mary Ann Glass explains how she captured the image:
When we stayed in Umbria, we used to take frequent trips to Montefalco to buy wine. At that time (this was a few years ago) the town was a bit run-down, but it still had its beauties. This gilded wooden angel was in a church near the town gate, and I’m attracted by anything gilded! I didn’t have a good angle to photograph the entire angel, but I didn’t mind because I thought this cropping brought to life the otherwordly quality of such a beautiful creature.
