Photo Gallery » From Hell to Hell

From Piekło Górne (Upper Hell) to the Piekło Dolne (Lower Hell) ... autumn trip around Kashubian forests in search of ancient tombs and maybe even stone circles ... The weather is not very pleasant - gray, overcast and rainy day - just as in November (although this is only half of October) but the most important moment for a few minutes the sun shone ... and how can you not believe the power of the Ancient Gods...
I photographed (like last time) with the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II lens M.Zuiko Digital 12-40 mm f / 2.8 ED PRO
Location: Poland, Pomorskie, Piekło Górne, Piekło Dolne
