I took this picture in Houayxay, Bokeo province, Laos.
Bokeo is a northern province of Laos. The province is rich in deposits of precious and semiprecious stones.
You can see the Thai bank of the Mekong river.

The image is nicely presented but I would have liked to see a little more space for him to row in.

a tranquil and atmospheric composition full of wonderfully subtle colours, light and appeal. A compelling, elegant image and presentation.

The textures in the iron boat and shutter are superb.
Nice composition and good presentation, TFS.
Very well done, TFS.

I have been there years ago. I left Laos through Huay Xai for Thailand & crossed the Mekong River in a big dug out canoe. Good sharpness & framing on the boat & oarsman. Excellent pastel colours & pov with a misty bg. Tfs!

J'aime beaucoup le format de l'image qui lui donne de la profondeur.J'aime aussi la légère brume d'humidité qui recouvre le fleuve et qui ajoute une touche de mystère.

Interesting the point of view, splendid colours and the beautiful depth of sharpness. A pretty view of the haulier on the river Mekong.

This is a very peaceful and pleasant capture. The pole that the man uses makes a very dominating diagonal in the composition. A beautiful background landscape!

This one is also really wonderful of the morning misty hour. A great daily life shot as the people begin their task of the day. The image provide a very peaceful and tranquil feeling. As the pace of life is very slow there, not much rush to go anyway. Time seems to just stand still.
Excellent shot and good vertical composition, the landscape behind give a strong feeling of depth and also gives an misty mood.

A fine composition with appealing, soft colours. This was clearly not a bright day but the lack of direct sun has produced some very pleasant colours that blend very well.

Are you already back home?? Nice scene of the Mekong river. I would perhaps prefer a wider view, with the whole boat. Nice misty view. i traveled and day and a half from Golden Triangle to Luang Prabang, it was fantastic funny experience. Unfortunately, in the predigital era.

Une très belle composition toute en beauté, calme et sérénité avec une belle harmonie de teintes douces.

Hi Serghei, Looks like you had a fab, and restful time. This looks very moody on this river Mekong. Well managed. Easter greetings from Suffolk. Iain.

Superb postcard from the Mekong Delta, Serghei. It is a simple but elegant composition with the subdued light in that humid atmosphere. You were there just a week ago, I see. Are you still there now?
