Haunt My Dreams And Feed My Demons by DpressedSoul Haunt My Dreams And Feed My Demons by DpressedSoul
Hope would fail me in the falling snow
And slake a wish inside
Friends would leave me in my darkest hour
Yet trust me with their lives
She would haunt my dreams and feed my demons
They tell me to go

(Opeth, Nepenthe)

Winter 2010, Hohes Gras, near Kassel (Germany).
Photo and edit by Florian Schmidt.

A masterpiece, Florian.

I missed the snow we had last winter, so I had to go through some old photos again - and finally found this. ;)

Glad that you like it, dear. Thanks a lot! :heart:

Stimmt, in den Wäldern rund um Kassel treiben sich höchstens irgendwelche Wesen aus Grimms Märchen herum. :paranoid:

ja, klar. die sind nun allerdings so dämonenhaft, dass die schwarte kracht. aber hatten die schon die monokultur? oder sind diese wesen nicht vielmehr mit der verbreitung derselben verschwunden ?

I also don't know why it took me so long, I posted a lot of these winter pictures last year and somehow got tired of them. But this winter haven't brought any snow so far, maybe that is why I got back to last year's pictures. ;)

The region around the city of Kassel is where the Brothers Grimm collected their fairytales, maybe that is why almost every forest here looks a little bit like out of a fairytale.

I'm glad that you like it, Jean. Thanks a lot! :hug:

A magical place, indeed, in the homecountry of the Brothers Grimm. Haunted but hauntingly beautiful! Thank you very much, Richard! (Btw, it's not infrared. The trees were really frosted... :aww:)

At first I thought it might be IR...but then I looked to the sky...they would have been much darker if it were IR. For real the Grimm boys lived there...I loved their fairytales as a kid...which I still happen to be...at heart :lol:
