I Try To Reach This Unknown Land by DpressedSoul I Try To Reach This Unknown Land by DpressedSoul
Who caused all this longing for
I try to reach this unknown land
Don't know what, far away
Where I've never never been before
I try to run and swim across
For what luck
Who can say

I am getting paranoid
I feel a gaping void
I have to fill this
Without idea of bliss
I have to break through these barriers
I have to break through
I have to break through

(Deine Lakaien, Midnight Sun)

I wonder how long I'll keep believing that there's a light at the end of the tunnel
until I finally realize that it's only photoshopped.

In the woods near my hometown, Bad Arolsen (Germany).

Wow!
I'm stunned, Florian!
The way you took that picture is simply awesome. The vision is great. The thumb catched my attention right away. I was almost forced to click and to fullview it. Your picture is so full of emotions and it seems to tell a story.
Technically it's perfect, but as many people may know, every forest-picture of you is perfect :heart:
I love how the dark fades the more you follow the path.
The composition is lovely, and I do really enjoy every picture you upload.
Keep up the good work.
Du hast schon etwas länger einen immer bleibenden Fan :giggle:

Taking a picture of a path in the forest has been done to death but this photo is unique.
Superb technique in both composition, lighting and subject matter has created a beautiful timeless piece.
I like how there is no hint of time or season giving it a very ethereal and almost supernatural edge without being obvious. The play of light and dark in the composition truly captures the essence of the forest and it's very nature and also shows that thought went into it.
I'm now going to check out the rest of your gallery due to this piece!

Danke sehr! :blackrose:

Der Gedanke ist gar nicht so abwegig. Ich wohne in der Nähe von Kassel, wo die Gebrüder Grimm den größten Teil ihrer Märchensammlung zusammengetragen haben. Viele ihrer Märchen entstammen Erzählungen und Sagen aus dieser Region und haben teilweise auch einen Bezug zu tatsächlichen Orten. Insofern könnte dies vielleicht wirklich Hänsel und Gretels Wald gewesen sein, ich habe bloß kein Hexenhaus mehr gefunden. ;)

Dann musst du noch mal ordentlich suchen :D vielleicht tauchts auf...
aber da hat man glatt Lust sich wieder mit Grimms Märchen zu beschäftigen :heart:

DpressedSoul Featured By Owner May 4, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Das wurde vermutlich in der Zwischenzeit von Schaulustigen aufgegessen. :chew: :D

Und egal ob mit oder ohne lokalem Bezug, Grimms Märchen sind es wert immer wieder darin zu schmökern. :thumbsup:
