A great place for birdlife, the warm tones of the dominant reeds glue the eyes as strong point to the whole wetland. There's a great feel of sweeping vastness and depth in subtle bright light and colors that make this shot a fine landscape. The distant green and blue add the extra visual effect which further convey to the tranquility of it. Lovely shot, Well done.
