During a walk around Rakotzsee with the picturesque Devil's Bridge I was stunned by this very contrast scene with the autumn tree touched by the evening sun and reflection in the lake.

Rakotzsee and Rakotzbrücke (a.k.a The Devil’s Bridge) are located in Azalea and Rhododendron Park, Kromlau, Germany (less than 6 kilometers from the Polish border). The park is a beautiful example of an ”English garden” and has many small ponds and lakes. What makes Azalea and Rhododendron Park so special is Rakotzbrücke, a Bridge that was built during the mid 19th century. The bridge was specially built to create a circle when it is reflected in the waters beneath it – a popular photo opp. The Bridge’s artificially-formed basalt columns were specially shipped from distant quarries. There is a large (and free) parking lot. Best to arrive around May when the rhododendron and azalea plants have fully bloomed. The park’s entry is free of charge and is always open.

The tree, looks like a Happy tree, posing or dancing, like a ballerina, showing off her golden gown, in the golden sun rays ...She even has the reflecting water to admire herself ... If trees were magical beings ... Or perhaps they are :)
Stupendous photo ... a Masterpiece !
