An image, one of rural images captured whilst spending a most enlightening and awe inspiring late afternoon at a remote Ban Nam Dee river village, home to 'Lanten' ethnic minority which lies about 10km north of Luang Namtha village town in Northern Laos. The placid water was still hardly a ripple and not a sound could be heard as the day ended.
I just got lost in myself and enjoyed the fleeting moments alone only accompanied by my faithful rental motor bike....

Back to TE with this colorful rural scenery
Simple, no eye catching element but beautiful however
Welcome back, best regards

un Laos nel massimo del suo splendore con i colori che risaltano nel paesaggio rarefatto e tranquillo.
Una composizione eccellente che rende molto bene la bellezza di questo paesaggio che appare ancora incontaminato e rispettoso della tradizione.
Ciao e buona serata

your landscapes of Southeast Asia are fantastic. The sky and the green colors are a feast for the eyes. The mood you are describing in your title is very well conveyed and felt by the viewer. My compliments!

This is a lovely tranquil scene. I like the soft light. The glass-like surface of the water puts the viewer in reflective mood (pun not intended).The reflections of the reeds on the bank and the thin grasses or tree branches in the water add dof.

Hello Abmdsudi - The golden river invites us into the landscape and how magical the view is in the warm light. The delicately figured sky has lent the shot mood and beauty. An image to calm the soul. Warm regards Rosemary

Photo has climate.

The colours of this evening in rural Laos are stunning. Orange, dark blue and intensely green fields, everything mirrored in the perfectly quiet water. I think I can detect a few persons near the water. They must have been holding their breaths so not to disturb the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Not a sound was heard until you kick-started your motorbike :-).

Like looking at Gods palette, a stunning range of colors softly blended together to make this most beautiful image. The vibrant greens stand out, lush and verdant against the encroaching darkness, while the sky holds promise of rain and wonderful colors. The fact that this soft reflection of the whole scene is included makes this even finer.
Thanks as always
aleXundar (1256) 2013-12-12 10:37
Oh, it is a spectacular twilight!
The greens and the glowing reflection in the water... very attractive. The sky, the hill and tiny cottages in this vast panorama look like a painting.
With warm regards,

De très jolies teintes donner par la lumière de fin de journée, j'aime l'atmosphère paisible et attirante qui y règne, très belle présentation

"silent stillness" and maybe also "still silence":) The mood and feeling described in your note is perfectly conveyed by this mesmerizing photo. Although we can see little of the flat landscape and the distant mountain is dark and mysterious, this looks like a blessed place because it's so beautiful and peaceful. The stillness is only disturbed by the shifting light and colours that create a wonderful silent spectacle. Everything seems to be in perfect harmony. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
bartekp (4746) 2013-12-12 13:48
Superb moment you caught. Nice composition and colors.
Have a nice evening
nikkitta (17066) 2013-12-12 16:14
Finally you are back with very creative capture of a so quiet and calm place with the water reflecting the soft colors of the sky
No ship this time but a tree at the left back
The so green fields are rice plantations, it seems?
Happy to have you again

La lumière et les couleurs sont vraiment étonnantes dans cette belle photo de paysage.
papagolf21 (95479) 2013-12-12 23:47
Bonjour, cher Abmdsudi,
Votre regard sur la nature est riche et nous émerveille chaque fois.
Un grand plaisir à découvrir vos compositions.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-12-12 23:47
silent stillness suits perfect to describe the scene!
This moody light and the way it affects the color scheme make your shot truly delightuful.And the smooth water surface in the FG nicely transmit this tranquil and peaceful feeling of this scene.

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impewssive to see th winding river with a good perspective and dyed to the setting sun, and the pastoral green paddy field. Th looks like timeless world. And, it's also impressive in tasteful sky in late afternoon.
olive224 (2719) 2013-12-13 3:43
A nice landscape with a great light
Very well done ;)
mirosu (15972) 2013-12-13 4:03
What a wonderful mood this image has! The golden tones are beautiful and your composition with superb light reflections works so well. The view in to an open area is so nice. I really love the feel of this. Excellent photo work! Well done.
adramad (43111) 2013-12-13 5:18
Fascinating landscape with a colorful dream, the river with its placid waters, gives some wonderful reflections of the colors of the sky, the grassy plains dotted with trees, gives a great perspective and looks wonderful, all this, the sky gives the finishing touch.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.

This is a beautiful sunset photo. Do I detect a hint of HDR? I love the colors. I am going to guess those are paddy fields.
Waylim (25488) 2013-12-13 19:34
There are many other previous images that I have not yet critique on, but I'm jumping ahead because this one just caught my eye. I love the colors of the warm sunset color, while the rice field maybe a touch over saturated, but I love the dream like quality of it. and it really enhance the my feeling of nostalgic. It bring out eyes to the rice field as if it glow in the dark. the reflected light in the water is also very mesmerizing. I can see you lost yourself in the moment. I would too.
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-12-13 19:47
I'm not sure I've ever said this about a photograph before, but this one is delicious -- the colours, your special trademark, are so appealing, yet there is also a gentleness to the scene that invites the viewer in to a moment they may never want to leave... no wonder you got "lost" -- I feel the same just gazing at this. another magical photo from you :)
Silvio1953 (136675) 2013-12-14 6:50
Ciao Abmdsudi, fascinating sunset, lovely composition with beautiful reflections, splendid light and wonderful warm colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
saxo042 (37792) 2013-12-14 8:14
There are many fantastic colours in this picture and a very pleasant and attractive mood. The calm water reflects the sunset sky and enhances these feelings.
kwekwekan (1078) 2013-12-14 19:05
The serene atmosphere seems to be the main subject of your photo - not something that is easy to capture, but the result is very beautiful. Great management of the delicate light as well, especially the lush lime green at the water's edge.
Thanks for sharing,
Schnappilic (9690) 2013-12-14 23:57
Congratulations for this huge landscape with a splendid frame divine light, soft colors and a lot of silence. Great work!
rychem (32225) 2013-12-16 8:44
Wow! Beautiful scenery, fantastic color combination and reflections of the colorful sky, well composed photo
EstudioChispa (2164) 2013-12-18 7:07
Goodness, Abmdsudi, this image is 100% magic. The sky in the water, the glow of the greens, the haze of the hills, the fantastic compositional lines... I could go on and on, but thirty or more of our friends have already said so, too.
EXCELLENT work, and a fine image! Thanks for sharing!
Graal (101714) 2013-12-18 8:29
landscape here is very nice. I like the colors and light. Good POV you had. Pleasant calm mood. Well done photo.
Have a nice evening.
mkamionka (34593) 2013-12-18 8:33
this is a breath taking view. Most of all I am amazed by the variety of colors here with some red tones in the sky and a saturated green vegetation along the river bank. Some features in the sky go well along with the lines below resulting in a pleasant wide feeling of space.
eldancer1 (35471) 2013-12-18 10:41
Beautiful! Very soothing scene with good details and wonderful colors with the green in proper contrast to flaming sky. Very well done, tfs.
josepmarin (58325) 2013-12-18 11:25
a nice composition where you offers us the beauty of this rural landscape under a subtle light of the late afternoon.
The chromatic wealth of these well saturated colors create a wonderful and calm atmosphere, with a beautiful sheens and reflections on the water.
It's a great work, as a painting.
adores (43851) 2013-12-21 14:42
Beautiful and peaceful landscape! I like the colours of the sky and rice fields and the reflection on the water. Very well done!
Angshu (56748) 2013-12-23 1:17
A beautiful rural scene made more picturesque thanks to the wonderful pastel light reflected in the river water. I feel the beauty is accentuated further by the distant hills which creates depth as well. Fine work!
