On a late summer evening two years ago I was walking along the shore of the lake Lossen, a few kilometers from my cabin in the western part of Härjedalen/Sweden where I live. I found this strange two meter high construction of old tree roots, which normally lay at the ground along the shore.
It was a kind of twilight this evening. This is a very lonesome place in a lonesome area. No one lives there. No house, no fishing cabin, no boat house, nothing. I took a few pictures and went back to the car.
The day after I came back to this place, wanted to show it to my girlfriend. This strange tree root monster wasn’t there anymore. No sign that it had been there the day before. Spooky.
For this picture I was using a Nikon F100 film camera, a Nikkor zoom AF 20-35/2.8, a Kodak Ektar 100 film and a tripod.

another strong posting, good sky, colours and i like the roots of the washed up tree and the way they take your eye through the shot.

Each element of the composition works beautifully, is skillfully positioned within the frame, the light plays with shadows and sharpness enraptures the viewer!
A very good work, worthy of attention!

Dear Peter, this is an excellent pov of that lake, some gravel and rock on the bank and a stump, a golden sunset on the lake water, high resolution, nice light management
All the best, warm regards

dies ist ein Bild, das die Phantasie des Betrachters anregt - auch ohne die interessante Note gelesen zu haben. Wie schön, dass Du mit Hilfe der Kamera solche Momente konservieren kannst!

Missed this one beautiful shot, Peter.
I engoy how the golden light coming through clouds and reflected over water. The dry pile of woods and branchs gave a fine contrast to the landscape shown.
A marvelous photojob done.
