Are you backwoods in coming forward?

You have a very colorful past.

Very neat view of the lane. Please do map this one!

Sixten Imgs on July 25, 2012

It may seem so, Nick. You know it is sometimes good to retreat deep in the countryside. Big cities are not always welcoming you :)

Ken, probably it has been exaggerated in the post-processing. I hope you don't mind the new title...

You really have the talent to recognise nice views, Kevin. Even from this kind of small shard. It's from the Punkaharju ridge, one of the most famous national landscapes in Finland.

Wow, that does look like a beautiful place! I'm glad you mapped it!

Very interesting composition, sixten! It's quite out of the ordinary, so I think you can land pretty well in the contest.

Sixten Imgs on July 28, 2012

Thank you, Patrick. Very nice prospect :) . Still looking back my earlier history it surely would turn the whole scenery upside down.

I wondered when I first saw this if it was destined for "Time: Reverse". I hope it does well!

Very nice photo, may I ask what drove you to take it? (pun intended!)

Sixten Imgs on July 30, 2012

Thank you, Ken :) Maybe it was the slow summer day reflexes. This site also tends to steer your camera use to very mysterious ways. You drive to one of the most famous sceneries in the country and return with this shot...

Nice idea for the category "Time: Reverse".

Hi sixten - very clever treatment, very effective.

Thank you very much, Matthew. I tried first the opposite approach with the colours but the b&w past didn't feel very interesting. Best regards
