Artist's description:

Sandskredsmosen is located in the centre of Grib Skov in Northern Zealand. Some years ago drainage was stopped causing the water level to rise and what used to be a wet meadow turned into a little lake - and in the process drowning a number of trees in the middle of the used-to-be meadow. This picture was shot on an ice cold January morning in 2001. I've come by this particular spot on a number of times and have made pictures from different angles - but this one has the quietness and peace and spectacularity combined - I'll go a long way to see and photograph someting like this.
The tree trunks in the middle of the picture are long gone - but this place still has a lot of magic about it.
This image also reminds me of all the things I like about landscape photography - to get in position to make the shot, I had a 45 min. drive and the an hour-long walk through a completely dark forest in the stillness of a winter morning. Setting up the camera on its tripod, loading film and then waiting for the first light of day. Sometimes I've have been waiting in vain for someting that never materialized - but just being there is worth the effort.
Walking through a forest at night or just well before dawn is an experience to it self - especially in winter.

Materials used:

Shot on a Linhof Technikardan on 6x9 cm roll-film, scanned on a Imacon Photo scanner.
