Remind me "Dead Marshes" on the way to Mordor, the quote from J. R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Ring" is the best description of this picture:
"Dreary and wearisome. Cold, clammy winter still held sway in this forsaken country. The only green was the scum of livid weed on the dark greasy surfaces of the sullen waters. Dead grasses and rotting reeds loomed up in the mists like ragged shadows of long forgotten summers."
