Lovely and mysterious! Wonderful photo! I love when nature is bit cruel and rough and this photo shows nature`s power to change itself! And it is quite surprise to me that this swamp view is actually in southern Germany. Looks like Latvia or even like Murmansk region.
In the summer evenings, when the air gets cool but the water is still warm, we get something best translated as "dancing fairies"(translated from Swedish "Älvadans") on the water. It's small streaks of water vapour that seems to 'dance' across the surface of the water. Does this happen here as well? If so, it must be look amazing
Yes, it happens here too, especially after thunderstorms and in autumn where the temperature differences between day and night are very big. In very dark nights you can see some lumination and light effects too that are caused by phosphoric gases generated by organic decay. I wanna be the first that will take a fotograph of this.
Haha, I looked at this picture because I thought "Oh, wow, this looks just like the forests back home" and then I read the description and duh, it's because this is basically a picture of the forests I know from back home. XD I come from a place 200 km farther north, but the forests near the Czech border look just like this.
Eh? But the reflection of the snag just to the upper right of the center of the picture is wrong -- there's an extra tree in the reflection. A lower eye point, such as one should have in the reflection, shouldn't do that -- there should just be blank sky behind the snag.
I've been trying too see what you're speaking of, but I can't. But, you need to consider that this picture has been shot at a much wider focal angle, 18mm, than the human eye has, which is around 50mm. So what a normal person would see when walking through the same scene doesn't really apply. And, yes. Yes it is a lovely photo.
Hi, I had to watch my own picture to find out what is wrong. The trees in the reflection where you would expect just blue sky are much nearer than the others. They are on the little island in the swamp and very small. Hard to see because of the background over the surface. The other thing is that the black moore water is reflecting very strongly, so it is not easy to see where the surface of the water is. Mother Nature is playing tricks on us.
