Theo Bosboom - The signs
Walking through the Muddus national park I was searching for ways to capture the spirit of the primeval forest. This was not easy, in locations like this you always run the risk that you miss the forest for the trees. When I discovered this tracks of beetle larvae on a half burnt tree, I knew I had found the eye catcher I was looking for. It tells the story of the old forest, where a whole range of animals, plants and organisms is dependent on dead wood.
Against the general rules of composition, I put the dead tree in the centre of the frame and I left the other trees unsharp, so the focus completely lies on the bark and the beetle tracks.
