Most people imagine swamps as dark and murky, but they can be spectacular. Tupelo fall foliage, with its colors from orange and red to yellow and gold, makes for splendid scenery. Spotting one of these trees among the grey Spanish moss is like finding a pot of gold.

Hilda Champion is a German/American fine art photographer born near Munich, Germany. She has been living in Naples, Florida since 2001.

Her aspiration in photography is to release the poetry of the ordinary and help people see the un-seen. She tries to show an abstraction of what she sees, free of distractions, and describes her images as “based on a true fantasy”.
