Photographer's Note

The forest on the Czarna Gora (Black Mountain; alt: 1207m) slopes disappeared around 20 years ago. Only the summit of the mountain has health trees.
In this place, we might see a layered but invisible structure of our Earth's atmosphere. The lower layer of the air had a long lasted high concentration of the sulfur dioxide (SO2). Brown coal power plants located 160-140 km away was the source of this pollutant.
