One of my personal favorites. Partly because the place is very special for me. This is the Tamrash preserve in Rhodope Mountain, Bulgaria. Being relatively near to my home and so abundant in flora and fauna, it has become one of the most visited places for me and my family through the years. Unfortunately it is becoming more and more inaccessible because some of the territories were bought by private owners making it a restricted game preserve. The image was shot in the Autumn but the intense colors were too distracting and I converted it to black & white. The dreamy look of the image was achieved by breathing on the lens prior to exposure. In addition I used a CPL filter to control the unwanted reflections and to preserve the deep tones in the foliage.
