In responce too,
This could be due to a bad photographer, the sun or similar factors.
Also its a follow up to my comment made,
However you can still see trees in the far background, I dont know of any factor which could cause trees up close to disappear yet causing behind it in the far distance objects to still appear.
That and when zoomed in you see something else strange to the far right.
The object on the right appears to have nothing joining it's head to it's neck and even worse is on the left it appears the object has no head at all, this is represented by the green lines.
The red lines show where the shadows should have formed, however as stated before by another member we cannot be sure of this due to the layout of the land.
