Drone Photo.

Store Dyrehave (literally Large Deer Park) is a forest immediately south of Hillerød, on both sides of Københavnsvej, in North Zealand, Denmark. Consisting of conifers and beech, it was enclosed with stone walls in 1619–28 as a royal deer park for hunting. In 1680, Christian V introduced a geometrical system of roads forming a star with eight branches for par force hunting.[1] Although par force hunting was discontinued in 1777, the road system and numbered stone posts remain fully intact.[2] Store Dyrehave is one of the three forests forming the Par force hunting landscape in North Zealand, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Wikipedia).
The drone operator is seen standing in front of the square stone setting in the middle of the frame for scale.

Great shot, I love these drone photos for the simple fact that you see everyday items and places in a completely different aspect. You did the angle with great composition, the only thing I might have tried is to complete the path that is a dead end with some photoshoppery :) Anyways, awesome photo

Hi eWill..thanks for the praise and the comment...and you have a point that something could be done with the dead end path..I think though that I would have tried to 'copy' some of the trees and covered the path instead...as all the other paths have a more direct opposite...three reasons I didn´t...I did not think of it...I don´t have the skills in Photoshop yet...and I did not think of it..:O)...

Great photo, and thanks for entering my challenge, but could you tell me what the hidden item is, please?

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo is taken in: Store Dyrehave (literally Large Deer Park) is a forest immediately south of Hillerød, on both sides of Københavnsvej, in North Zealand, Denmark. Consisting of conifers and beech, it was enclosed with stone walls in 1619–28 as a royal deer park for hunting. In 1680, Christian V introduced a geometrical system of roads forming a star with eight branches for par force hunting.[1] Although par force hunting was discontinued in 1777, the road system and numbered stone posts remain fully intact.[2] Store Dyrehave is one of the three forests forming the Par force hunting landscape in North Zealand, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[3][4] Wikipedia.
Time
The photo is taken in the late afternoon/early evening and required a small 40 min. drive from my home and about a mile of walking into the forest.
Lighting
All natural light.
Equipment
The photo is taken using my Mavic 2 Pro Drone.
Inspiration
I had found the location by looking at North Zealand (Denmark) on Google Map and had the idea of the photo and composition in my head before I got there. When I arrived, I also made some videos of the location and will see what I get from that. For the same location I also intend to have a photo from each season of the year to see what difference the colors gives in mood of the photos.
Editing
Slight editing done...for this photo it was mostly cropping/alignment...I did not do much on color enhancement as the whole scene is vibrant as it is. I maybe should have considered removing the one path in the bottom left corner that don't have an opposite path...but I actually did not have the skills required at the time and more importantly did not think of it at all. This is however an edit I have made on the fall edition photo taken October 2019 of the same location.
In my camera bag
I carry the Nikon D850, a NIKON NIKKOR AF-S 20MM F/1.8G ED, the NIKON AF-S 24-70MM 2,8E ED and the TAMRON SP 150-600 F:5,6/6,3 DI VC USD NIKON....a pile of Lee ND and Grad filters... and all the other tiny photo-stuff we all carry. As mentioned this specific photo was taken with my Mavic 2 Pro drone.
Feedback
To take a similar photo a similar location must be located (I used Google Maps myself) and the use of a drone is of course necessary. It doesn't need to be expensive and gives a completely other set of viewpoint opportunities than normally available. Looking for shapes and patterns in the landscape can be one way of scouting locations and e.g. looking for coastal areas where rocks and formations can give a photo opportunity with a lot of contrast and clear shapes (that will attract the viewers’ attention) is another.
