#98 (i) Ráno v lese na bývalých Kapličkách - Morning forest at former settlement Kapličky

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Photo made on the forest road connecting typical Šumava alpine meadow and peat pond below.

Very basic and well hidden base (hut) was built by our scouting group (with permission of forestry managemnet) in 1991 in formerly prohibited area on that meadow.

In the upper part of the meadow there used to be village called Kapličky (Chapels). In 1948 - 1990 borderline area was strictly prohibited and villages inside area - including Kapličky - were broken down. Only fragment of stone cross and water trough remained till now. You can also find relics of cellars there.

Contest September 2011: Scenery

Larry Workman QIN on September 29, 2011

Krásné! A really nice capture. Like. This is a great forest photo. If you ever consider joining any of the Panoramio groups, I hope you will join the 'Forest and Woodlands' group with this photo.

Hi Larry, added to your Forest Group. I am member of this group since its very beginning. ;)

These photos are taken at the place, where we built very basic hut as a base for group of young tourists (something like scouting for boys and girls). Group is disbanded now, but hut is still there.

Thank you for comment and like! Hope you know how to enjoy this kind of morning.

Larry Workman QIN on September 29, 2011

Of course you have! I was so overtake by the photo that I failed to pay attention.

Hi Morteza Saeedi, thanks for stopping by! Well, we don't call this "jungle" but only "forest" in Šumava. :)

vvanchev thanks!

**Ladunko, díky za lajku! Na Karla a jeho domek bezdomovce v lese to ale nemá.

Moc pěkná fotka Tome! R.

Tomas K☼h☼ut on October 2, 2011

Ahoj Radku, mám i jinak zpracovanou verzi - do teplejších tónů, ale myslím, že skutečnosti více odpovídá tahle. Ráno bylo docela vlhké a chladné.

Bravohorse, cbaisan, Anton, Maarten - thank you!

Wow, Marten, it's pure chance to get this in the contest, I think... Hope you are not bored too much by parade of mughshots and other contesting "content", Well, thanks for participation in new contest, it's very generous for other users!

Cheers, Tom

Whenever I get a chance I try to 'browse' the contest pictures, especially due to my long absence from Panoramio. I agree that there is a large amount of "contesting content", but I have also found some superb photos!

I do keep watch for my favourite photographers because I like to support them and the amazing thing is that the last time I opened the Scenery page 'Morning forest at former settlement Kapličky' was included in the first set! It is a very good picture and I was very happy to see who the author was!!

Please forgive the long comment, and Good Luck in the contest, Maarten

Tomas K☼h☼ut on October 3, 2011

Maarten, I really appreciate your approach to contest... many former contestants and "known names" lost their interest in the current contest - as they were more attracted by politics and social interaction involved in former contest organization and chance to win the prize by spamming.

Yes, now you can reveal some hidden gems and unknown talents in the current contest. Now I spent more time voting in the contest gallery than before. Sometimes giving votes to nice photos, sometimes reporting photos unsuitable for Panoramio :) found through contest.

What is amazing are results of the current contest. You can see winning photos with ~100 - 200 visits and one page of comments! Something absolutely insane before... when winning photos had >1000 views and 50 pages of V+L comments...

Thanks for your long comment. :)
