WONDERS OF THE BLACK FOREST
~~Krai Woog Gumpen Waterfall~~
An interesting and intriguing place in the Black Forest region of Germany. This place was packed with beautiful (but poisonous) mushrooms.
An amusing incident happened when I was shooting this waterfall.
As I was busy pressing the shutter button, all of the sudden, a group of 8-10 teenage boys (15-18 yo) showed up on top of that cliff completely naked (most of them), and started jumping into the water.
They were not aware of me being there, and when they saw me as they were coming out from the water and having to pass by me to go back to the cliff and jump again, they were blushing and started covering themselves with their hands.
They disappeared into the forest for a few minutes and returned to the cliff afterwards in their underwear and continued to jump in the water. I pretended nothing happened and I continued with my shooting. Since I had my settings to long exposure, they appeared like ghosts in my images, but the water was disturbed with splashes.
This image was taken after they left.
