Isn’t that a beautiful place? (Part 1)

beautiful forestI am going to write about my walk to that forest in a week or so, but in the meantime I’d like you to guess where it is. If someone gets it right, you will win a prize of my choosing.

UPDATE: The mystery has been solved.

    I don’t know where it is, but you certainly are correct about it being beautiful!

    Its typical lithuanian pine forest. Such forest grow in sands near the Baltic sea ( in Jurmala in Latvia too), around Druskininkai or to the north- east from Vilnius. Maybe it is near Nida in Curonian Spit?

    • It’s not in Nida or on the Curonian Spit, although there are very beautiful pine forests indeed. I was there a few weeks ago when everything as still covered by snow.

    I’m guessing what is that construction on the right edge of the photo… .
    And if it is not a seaside, it’s too sparse to be a genuine forest, it’s not a forest. Somewhere near your current home, there is plenty of such corners, say from the railway to Neris river, and actually everywhere :) . It’s matter of skills to catch a nice composition, and you already proved many times that you can make a piece of art out of anything :D .

    • You are the first person to notice the tiny bit of construction which I so carefully tried to hide. But no, it’s not anywhere near my place in Vilnius.
      Thanks for the compliment! I am actually happy that nobody is guessing it right. If it continues like that, it will be quite a revelation in a few days.
