On hike through the snowy swamp (4) by Mark Billiau.

On hike through the snowy swamp (4)

Winter was here with bitter cold temperatures far below zero, a biting northeastern wind, not much snow (but better than nothing) and sunny conditions.
Perfect weather for me to make a hike.

This landscape shot shows the snow covered swampy peat moors of ‘Hohes Venn’.
‘Hohes Venn’ is the greatest (4500 ha) and oldest National Park of Belgium and the most unique nature biotope in the land.
The whole area is vast and desolate. It consists mainly of swamps which can only be traversed by using the wooden paths that were made by the local foresters.

+++

Deep in the forsaken and by bitter cold frozen swamps, one could nearly hear the silence.
At a chill temperature of -20° (real -15°), I suppose I was the only moving living thing in that wide area.
A most profound experience !

Location : Brackvenn

A big thanks to willy ombret for the kindly nomination of this picture !

Ein Nationalpark, von dem ich hier nun häufig Aufnahmen sah, er muss wirklich fantastisch sein, Deine Aufnahme ist es auch wieder

Once again an awesome shot, showing your paradise. The center of the visual tree can be used to represent the four seasons.

the lonely birch, perfectly at home in the bitter cold snow, matching the monochromeness of winter perfectly in color! what a beautiful picture of a serene but inhospitable winter landscape. don't ever slip on the path and hit your head on the wood – they might find you in the next thawing, frozen into a dripping block of ice… ; ))) greetings, sabine.

Excellente compositie met de boom die het landschap overheerst. Toch de moeite waard om in de koude te wandelen.
Groetjes, Gisèle

Indeed, the great weather and a place for winter walks away from the hustle and bustle. What is the length (km), these wooden paths?

You walks through the Venn and beautiful images of this cold Winter landscape are such a treat for me, Mark ..... Winter is more than 100 km away from here, and my skiing days at New Years were too short (and with much company) .... another really fine shot - the birch with its filigre branches and twigs a special eye catcher.
greetings, Adele



Leo_nid, 15.02.2012 at 22:33h

fine winter mood for a solitary walk
i love the looks of the twin birch



Canan Oner, 15.02.2012 at 23:03h

Must be a wonderful feeling hiking there but watch out so you don't slip Mark...
Beautiful view..
Cheers,

Fast hätten wir uns getroffen! Ich war ein bißchen früher, da war der Raureif noch auf den Bäumen.
Du bist auch ein "Venn-Fan"!
Herrlich sind deine Bilder vom Venn.
Salut Brigitte

I agree with Willy's proposal, the shot is a great one for the gallery.
So you were the only one moving around at very cold temperatures... but it seems the path was trodden before by people, judging by the traces left behind.
It's funny, I would not connect swamps with snows, but it's not the first time I have seen frozen swamps....
As said before, here my Pro!
Best regards,
Susana
