'Timeline' Artwork by Rob Sweere depict the path of the past, present and future.
At this very place, mammoth teeth have been found during excavations back in 1972. That's proof that mammoths roamed here some 2.3 million years ago! The mammoth teeth incorporated into the artwork are approximately five meters high and form a gate that visitors can walk under.
The artwork lends itself very well to long exposure photography. The elegant path, winding over the flat water, through the curved mammoth teeth to the time capsule.
This photo was taken after sunset during completely cloudy calm weather. Due to the increasingly dark twilight, I did not use an ND filter to get the Long-Exposure effect. The shift function of the Canon lens allowed me to shift the horizon slightly, without converging lines. The lens is also very sharp at f/16 and has a lot of depth of field. I achieved the almost monochrome image by slightly coloring the sky and water in Adobe Lightroom using a linear gradient filter.

I achieved the almost monochrome image by slightly coloring the sky and water in Adobe Lightroom using a linear gradient filter. Due to the lack of detail in the water and the sky, the photo radiates a lot of tranquility. The artwork's design does the rest, with the tusks and time capsule as the highlight.
