Dead Marshes by alexandre-deschaumes Dead Marshes by alexandre-deschaumes
This vision reminds me of the dead marshes , depicted by JRR Tolkien .

It's From Patagonia . April . Near El chalten .

There was a very violent wind , passing clouds , a very dark atmosphere .. And muted brown./ green colors that I like .

Nice ( stunning ) but dark photo of nature in its best ! Although maybe strange in view it have all right elements of a story telling photo . Perfectly done . Composition & colors are just right . It s very detailed photo . First what I seen in it are colors 3 of them green , brown and black , fabulous . The longer i look at this photo i see more and more details ( reflection of sky ) in right corner reflection of grass in water ) WOW Really beautiful capture . I think that this photo is perfect , my reasons are : beautiful nature and phenomenal artist ( photographer ) This "art" really is for DD . Keep up good work & hope to see some more works from you !

I completely agree with *autumn-ethereal, this is one of the best live shots of what many who have read the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien would think of when they visualize the dead marshes. Even those who have seen the movie (which I have), would agree that this is a very similar depiction to what was in theaters. Great find!!! ^^

Wonderful work as always. The clarity of this picture is great, and while maybe a little of the detail seems to be a little blurred on the bottom left portion of the image, the sheer "epicness" of the rest of the image more than makes up for it. Again, this is a REALLY good shot. I think Tolkien would have liked it. lol ^^

Gorgeous tones and stunning technique you got!!! It is by far the best live shots I have seen of what many who have read the Lord of the Rings would think of when they visualize the dead marshes, and especially this beautiful photograph!!!!

It is a lovely image. I'm not (addicted) to the Trilogy, though I do love it's (formulation) and its character's (natures). This image though is lovely to me for the significance of the winds and how they form around and within my own (internal) self.

(kisses) for posting this one.

I am in love with the movement of the water plants. I used to have a huge fear (and still don't think highly of them) any kind of "sea weed" type of plants - but this makes me see the beauty in them, past of my own emotion.

Oh mon dieu, c'est exactement ça!
Avant de lire ce que tu as écrit dans ma tête, ça a fait: "OH MON DIEU les marais des morts!! O__o"

Cette photo est vraiment excellente, la masse d'algue au premier plan rappelle vraiment les cadavres entre la couleur et le côté tentaculaire des algues, à la "vient par là que je te noie"

Manque plus que du rouge à l'horizon...

Bravo :D
