This photograph is taken in Kushiro located in East Hokkaido in Hokkaido in summer of four years ago. This place is a mouth of a river of the Kushiro river with which fills to the Pacific Ocean. The mouth-of-a-river part at 5:00 A.M. was wrapped in a still deep fog early morning. In the riverside, it was at anchor so that some boats might sleep. Probably, it is a fishing boat which goes on the shore to carry out fishing. The little ripples on the water was promoting the silence of early morning strangely.

Hello Mikio - I have a liking for 'landscape' shots taken with a longer length lens and this one appeals to me very much. The simple composition is beautifully balanced with the boat off-center and crisp. It allows the softer foggy mood of the morning to add its atmosphere to the image. Very nice! Warm regards Rosemary

These picture has a little mystique through the fog on background around the bridge.
Also the boat with reflections in foreground cares for a very well picture.
Excellent captured, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Une très belle photo, j'aime beaucoup l'atmosphère créée par la brume et le contraste avec les bateaux.
Ce pont qui forme une ligne horizontale très discrète est de toute beauté.

nicely framed boat with proper focus and excellent sharpness in the foreground.Misty bridge in the background helps to create the atmosphere of the early morning. The picture is full of peace and quiet mood.
Pretty colors and elegant composition.

Incredibly foggy morning in greyish tone, but that doesn't stop the die hard shooter! I love the simplicity and balanced compo with diagonal of the boat looking out into the river mouth with glimpse of the bridge adding the sense of depth and this condition creates a very interesting effect. Great capture and TFS.

A lovely, artistic composition with fine, subdued colours and a very moody atmosphere. The bridge provides a good background and is very nicely blurred by the mist. The boat is pleasantly reflected in the calm water.

Deep in fog, the morning looks "sleepy" over the river, yet a clear sight on the bridge.
Good choice made when post with the barge on right as part of the whole scen, it gave a great perspective to scale. Also, a reflection of the golden letters with the name of the vessel.
Have a nice weekend,

I like the fog that adds mystery and romanticism to this photo. A pleasant subject very well composed and executed.

Superb arrangement, you have positioned the boats nicely on the right side and the bridge in top part of the frame, in this way you have created excellent balance and harmony. The left side is well filled with the water. In this way all the elements in this photo are excellently balanced. The hazy atmosphere adds nice toning to the scene.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

There's a strange kind of poetry in this scene, dear Mikio. Maybe it's the combination of mist and metal.
Have a poetic weekend
PS: There seems be a sensor dust spot near the top of the picture?
