Ghosts 'n Goblins

Well, as you can see it was a very rainy and foggy day when I made this photo. I was on my way to reach the summit of a small mountain and was in the middle of a forest. And suddenly the fog cleared a little bit and I stand in front of this scene. The first thought that I had looking at this beautiful place was Ghost ’n Goblins. Ghost ’n Goblins is a platform game that I played as a child during the vacations in summer. In the game the player controls a knight named Sir Arthur, who must defeat zombies, ogres, demons, dragons and other monsters in order to rescue a beautiful princess :-) Well I was not a very good gamer, therefore I never had the chance to see the second stage of the game. But the first stage of the game was situated in foggy forests and cemeteries and when I saw the place on the photo I really had the idea to be in that game he he he :-) Imagine if suddenly a monster would appear from the left or from the right a naked witch would want to enchant me … I think I would die on the spot. It was really spooky.

But the longer I looked at this scene, the longer this scene began to enchant my senses. What if suddenly very little flying fairies would show up? And then I began to see this very special and fine light. This magical light could illuminate only a few green leaves and the foreground turned into a dream. Wow! I was fascinated!!! Rarely I have seen such a beautiful place in such a weather condition. So back at home I tried to transfer my feelings I had at this location into this photo. I hope you like it :-)
