Dieter Damschen - Dehesa


The typical lanscape of the Extremadura on a rainy day. The so called Dehesa with its typical evergreen oaks is a very old man made landscape.The mist cleans up with all distracting elements in the landscape, like houses and trails, and creates this mystical atmosphere.

Location: Extremadura, Spain

    I really like the dramatic light in this scene. Fog is usually a godsend for nature photographers.

    I like the mood of that image a lot. Somehow it reminds me of Lord of the Rings ... Mordor far in the back and just waiting for the Ents to show up. :)

    My thoughts went also to the land of Ents, thanks to Sandra :) This image is just mystic!

    What a place! I like to see an image far from the clichées about the Mediterranean weather... Where are the grullas???

    And the mist also hides Treebeard and 2 hobbits :-).
