Photographer's Note

Some 20 kilometers north-west of Warsaw, there is a huge forest complex called Puszcza Kampinoska (Kampinos Woodland). It is a remnant of endless woodlands that covered the whole Mazovia Region (Central Poland) centuries ago.

Today the forest area of Kampinos is protected as the Kampinos National Park with several strict reservations of no entry allowed. But all this doesn’t mean that the wild nature of the area is really safe. As the city of Warsaw expands its sizes, we permanently hear some projects to cut the woodland with a Warsaw highway ring. Of course Warsaw extremely needs the ring, but protection of that area should be the highest priority. If we lose Kampinos Woodland, there would be no chance to regain it at all in the future.

Every spring when the snows start melting, some places in Kampinos become giant puddles and mosquitos take the place over. Here you can see one of those places where tall trees and their shadows create a vertical portrait of the forest.
