Knuthöjdsmossen

 

“The nature reserve comprises bogs and peat areas, strewn with ponds. There are more lakes here than anywhere else in Bergslagen and the nature reserve has a rich birdlife. Geologists have no real explanation as to why there are so many lakes. What is clear is that they were formed very early and that the sphagnum bog has grown in stretches between the mires. The lakes are approximately 3.5 metres deep and have sandy bottoms.”

Day 1
This time it was getting to Knuthöjdsmossen located in Värmland. It is about 8 miles from where I live. Or it was 2 times but more on that later. Having been checking out some pictures from this place, I was real curious. It does not look like something I seen before. And after that found a picture Hans Strand taken from there I just had to go there.
The only problem was that because unfortunately summer is coming to an end and the evenings get dark very quickly and there is not much time to get the picture I was looking for. Then of course the weather would also be good enough that you get a nice sunset. Day number one that i went there I did not find the place I recon out in time for the sunset´s perfect minutes. However, I got a pretty good understanding of the place and how the light falls. Even some ok pictures, but not the one I had in mind. Here are som examples:

As you can see I never unpacked the medium format camera on the first day. I checked out the site for the most part and took some reference pictures. On day two, I was more prepared and knew exactly where I would place the camera and be ready. The weather was not 100 percent though.

Day 2
This time I went there earlier to be sure to get the image I was after. The sunset ended up not at all where I predicted it. It broke up and the light came too late and was wrong positioned so I simply had to photograph a different location with the current light. The idea was that the first picture I posted would have a strong red/pink sunset that reflect the whole picture. But everything does not become as you have planned.

I think that’s all I have to share with you right now. I highly Recommend to go there but as I said, a lot depends on the weather. It will definitely go there when the first thin layer of snow has settled.
The trailer for the film about landscape photography will also be posted on the blog this week so look out for it.
If you have any inquires or similar then just writing in the comments field.
