That's my kind of landscape: swamp land! I like this. Those trees won't live for much longer, I suppose... Which film?
I like the soft 'painterly' look your shots have.
Something I'm wondering about in this shot though- I always imagine that area (Big Cypress National Preserve??), being flat to form the marshes. Isn't the horizon sloping a bit much? The trees on the right look fine though. & I like the deep blue of the water.
The film is 126 format Ferrania Solaris 200. As for the trees they are find I’ve photographed at this spot several times over the last few years.
The softness is likely because the image is scanned from the 4x4 print and not the negative. The slop is likely from how I was holding the camera. The shot does needs rotating about 1-1/2 degrees to the left. Did not fit it because I liked the edges effect.
Your right the land is generally flat. Cypress stand grow with the tallest trees in the center of stand this give it them a dome look. So a horizon view with several stands can look like rolling hills.
