Artist's description:

Most people remember what they were doing on September 11, 2001. I was here - complete immersed in the scene in front of me and the thunderclouds above. Maglemose is the largest bog in Zealand and the largest in Grib Skov. Bogs have declined in Denmark due to decreasing groundwater levels - they have dried out and been invaded by forest and in many cases have been claimed to farming.
But Maglemose is in the heart of Grib Skov and is protected not just as part of the forest but also by an administrative decision back in 1911.
This image shows the central-eastern part of the bog - most is hidden behind the trees in the background. Autumn colors start with the grass turning yellow well before the tress, and the sharp colors of the water reflecting the sky and the intense green of the moss is accentuated by the low September-sun.
Just behind the water surface a fallen tree raises its dead branches the sky. I have photographed that tree in winter and paid for it by going through the ice and ending up in water up to my thighs ... but this place holds many images still to be shot!
The picture was made with my Linhof Tecnikardan on 6x9 cm rollfilm.

Materials used:

shot on a Linhof Technikardan on 6x9 cm roll-film, Kodak E100 vs, scanned on a Imacon Photo scanner.
