On the way to and from Mane Huts & Trails’ Flagstaff Hut, I have passed by this bog frequently. On a bright November day the bright tree trunks and their reflections in the dark water, surrounded by amber-tinted grass layers was a photo opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I stopped to capture this image just before a breeze came up and dissolved the essential reflections. A great scene can become mundane in an instant when a slight change occurs.
