I decided to call this place “The enchated forest” because it matches exactly in the typical definitionn of an enchanted forest, just like we read in old the books… Still, this is that Natural Reserve in Gamla Åminne that I cannot find any info about if on-line. There is information about it in the local though… Pretty strange…

Self tought. I am still learning, I allways will be! Landscapes and nature were, are and allways will be my favourite thing to shoot. Other motifs? Yeah, they will come as well…

    Oh how rich! The color is so beautiful…and love the algea/moss covered conks. I bet there are lots and lots of fungi in this enchanted forest all thru the year!

  • Perhaps Carla, I do believe that these kind of mushrooms do actually exist the whole year around… As for the rest, don’t really know… Thanks so much Carla for the visit and the nice comment! :)
