Magical swamp

 Dagobah, by Blockaderunner, on flickr

Classic Photography

Next in my series of Classic SW photography is this masterpiece by Blockaderunner, which is guaranteed to make any OT fan go weak at the knees!  I’ve seen several attempts to re-create this scene in Episode V, where Luke has crashed his X-Wing into a murky Dagobah swamp, but this is amongst the very best.  Using a combination of natural materials, water and smoke Blockaderunner has managed to capture the unique feel of Dagobah perfectly.  I particularly love the LEDs used on the X-Wing; they create some wonderful reflections on the water.
