[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This are two picture stiched together. If looked closely the division can be observed, though I tried my best to hide it.
The name of these twisted trees is "tara", at least its common name in Spanish. There aren't many of these in the Natural Reserve, and is difficult to find many of them together, as here. It is said that they have medicinal properties. Parasitic plants live on them.
The path goes just between them, and there are no plants on it because the terrain is compressed by the footsteps, and having it a little layer of soil, seeds can't germinate there.
The fog wasn't really blue, but the film rendered so. If Auto Levels in PS are run on this pic, the real thing can be seen.

Hello Jurgen!

Wonderful shot, it's so mysterious and somewhat creepy. With some creepy background music I really know where the East Witch lives...
Thanks for uploading.
