The usually well-attended Wörlitzer Park near Dessau, Germany, now is deserted and quiet. Neither swan nor boat destroys the reflection of the trees on the water. Created by Leopold III, Duke of Anhalt-Dessau, in the 18th century, the park remains a vital and popular manifestation of the Enlightenment.

Photo of the Day Award Category: Color Photography
Photograph Location: Dessau, Germany
Photographer: Jens Hieke (Dresden, Germany) Registered
Jens Hieke was born in 1967 and lives in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany. Though he was a graduate librarian, but working for a broadcaster for some time. He was always fascinated by the unlimited diversity of the world, and only a few years ago he discovered photography as a wonderful possibility to capture the transient, constantly changing beauty of humans, animals and things. Actually a man of words, the passion for photography is more than an addition to his other love, the literature. He had previously photographed with the Samsung NV24HD, but currently the Canon EOS 500D is his catcher.
