Come in, come in...

Why go back home, why turn around?
The forest calls.. Canít you hear the sound?

Come in, come in...

There is nothing to lose, and everything to win;
for this, this is not like anywhere you've ever been.

Here the trees twist, the branches twine
the twigs crack, the leaves rustle.

Why decline?
You won't get far, not moving a muscle.

Don't be afraid...

You could always stay
just till darkness falls?
Move.. come on, the forest calls!

Well done...

Go on, and don't look back
Just follow the track, step by step.

No need to bring water, no need to bring bread.
For you can drink from the Creek

It's all right, go ahead

Go, eat the Berries, no need to speak
Do not delay!

Proceed, proceed

Donít believe what they told you,
about poison and deceit
For every word is untrue.
Drink, eat!

I wouldn't lie to you

Your eyelids are heavy, your legs feel like lead?
No need to keep walking
lay down for a while instead..

Also taken yesterday during a shower. The rain and the warm weather created some nice fog hovering over this creek :)

Post-processing: I used a bit more post-processing than usual: I upped the highlights (that means the light parts get more light) and I lowered the lowlights (the dark parts get more dark) in Faststone, which causes the overall (kind of) shinyness, I reduced the noise and upped the saturation. The colour-scheme doesn't come from post-processing, but from the whitebalance.

Location: Groevenbeek, the Netherlands.


This is NOT stock.

May I use this for a book cover on Wattpad, an online book sharing site? I changed the title of my book to the Lost Creek, and I think this would work perfectly as a cover. Please let me know soon! Here's the link to my story, where the cover will appear: [link]

A very dreamy photograph... I absolutely wish I'd be there, because the picture appears to me as if it was a place to calm down a little bit. :) Would be perfect for me, since I found out, that it is simply the silence which makes me calm down and feel better instead the music, even if music is great. :)

But well, back to topic - like I said, amazing photograph!
I absolutely like your photographs, they are so eyecatching! I'm sorry if I have to repeat myself but I can't do in a different way! :)
