This was taken at a very quite spot when I took a short motor bike break along Route13 on my way up north to Muang Sing to catch early morning lights. It's a cool comfortable winding mountain road parallels to lazy Nam Song river, surrounded by lush greenery.
This is a delightful little sight through the break of thick vegetation with the canoe sitting alone in the shade of overhanging trees on calm pristine still water, a tributary that winds its way through the main river.
The evaporating mist is the only movement in this tranquil setting as the sun rays slowly start to sneak through the misty morning. I simply love the surrounding colors and sense of seclusion, this is one such moment being alone seeing mother nature at her finest..

Hello Abmdsudi - The subtlety of this image is wonderful. Possibly the most peaceful and atmospheric image I have seen on TE. What more can I say? Beautiful! Warm regards Rosemary

It seem difficult the light here deep in the mysterious place, and early in the morning, but you did great to capture that erry and misty mood, this make me think of the movie "Apocolypes Now" with Martin Sheen.

A very good capture of the mist hanging above the river. Beautiful and colourful!
Well composed with the long boat. Nice reflections in the water and a great view of the soil in the crystal clear water beside the shore.
Best regards, Paul

So peaceful and calm. I like the effect of the mist on the mood. And it is indeed a delightful scene. Good dof with nice details. Love the soft lighting. Well done, tfs.

beautiful atmosphere, i like so much this strange boat and the wonderful reflection, the color of the river is fantastic, excellent framing, an appropriate title for this lovely shot...have a good day...

You're capturing well this nature scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the riverside surrounded by calm atmosphere of morning. It has an atmosphere so that a fairy may come out. The air with fog, deep green and a long boat, it's good combination. And, the reflection projected to clean river draws out an additional good effect.
Have a nice weekend.

NICE SHOT Abmdsudi.

another very interesting impression of a wonderful landscape. You have chosen an excellently working POV. The colors are really fascinating but it is the light that creates a great mood. My compliments!

Beau moment capturer du matin ou le silence est roi dans ce paysage très nature, les reflets et la transparence de l'eau, une atmosphère plaisante bien mise en image
federico (4601) 2012-04-29 8:20
hi abmsudi, we have a nice shot from laos here, nice subject and POV, the fog is the must in your compo
macjake (73061) 2012-04-29 8:27
this one looks like something out of a hollywood movie set!
the little amounts of fog adds a mysterious atmosphere.
the boat itself is the star of the show, what an amazing subject!
ciakgiak (30433) 2012-04-29 8:29
Ciao caro Abmdsudi,
un'altra splendida atmosfera, un'immagine dark sulla quale spicca la canoa.
E' veramente una grande arte la tua di tirare fuori il meglio da qualsiasi situazione, con immagini di grande pregio e di grandissima qualità. Complimenti.
Un caro abbraccio
ourania (51103) 2012-04-29 10:21
this is a lovely picture of a very secluded and mysterious location where the only thing that disturbs the absolute stillness is the mist. It would be nice to see what this refuge looked like when the rays of the morning sun managed to penetrate and subdue the mist. The composition is fine, the long delicate canoe seems to suspend over the bank and the river. It also marks a point after which the colours become darker and more fascinating, in my opinion. I love the lighting, the wonderful colours and atmosphere of awakening. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
josepmarin (58359) 2012-04-29 11:36
a good title for this photo. Really we can feel the silence of this place and the calmness that it inspires, in this image caught in the morning, with a soft light, a few beautiful reflections on the water and an interesting effect produced by the mist.
The composition is magnificent, I love its graphical quality, its light and the beauty of the colors.
mauro61 (52887) 2012-04-29 12:37
immagine che mi piace molto con una bella atmosfera soft tra le due rive.
Perfetto inserimento dell'imbarcazione e scena che ha nella resa della luce e dei colori il suo punto di forza.
patdeph (35748) 2012-04-29 12:57
yes, it must be very nice to be there ,alone in the morning, as you were lost in the jungle, that is the feeling of your picture.The color of the river is incredible, so blue, and I love the slight mist above it, adding this touch of mystery.The boat gives some brightness with its white parts, and also gives a sensation of life . Superb!
Didi (60590) 2012-04-29 16:51

I note a very good management of lights.

Hello dear Abmdsudi
A stupendous photo, exuding silence and tranquillity even through the computer monitor. The mist really adds to that suggestive atmosphere and I love the cool blue and green tones. Of course the major element, the long boat, is beautifully positioned and reflected. A magical piece of photography, you should be very proud of.
siamesa (28127) 2012-05-01 2:25
Bom dia Abmdsudi

Salam my dear friend.
You have registered such a beautiful atmosphere in this well composed framing. I can smell the morning freshness just by looking at this image. The mist just above the surface is well registered in excellent contrast and details.
Thanks and have a nice day.
emilbo (22616) 2012-05-01 8:42
Une magnifique photo matinale et c'est bien vrai que ça sent la tranquillité avec un peu de brume sur la rivière. Un beau tableau qu'il ne reste qu'à signer. La clarté de l'eau est impressionnante et le bateau avec ses reflets est magnifique. Les couleurs sont superbes.
Tous mes compliments,
jlbrthnn (76039) 2012-05-04 2:41
The composition is beautiful. The picture suggests the tranquility of this natural place. The light, colors, sharpness and depth are of remarkable quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day

A picture with clearly your trademark:
Small boats and great quality.
The picture has a great composition and
light management. The reflection in the
water is a nice extra and I like the
small details in the picture like the:
drawings of the clay soil, the decoration
of the small branches and the little fog
above the water.
shevchenko (20548) 2012-05-08 3:53
Good frame to a fascinating scenery by the river, amazing calm water surface that reflecting well the view from surrounding environemnr, misty effect and dim environemnt add mysterious feel, it is look like a scene in the movie too, nice impressive nature view in the morning, distinct photo, good shoot.

I would have to praise this image that looks more likely like a beautiful oil painting..the darkness in the back, the blending colors and the exotic atmosphere are all amazing!! thank you very much for your comment on my picture of the church...it means a lot to me that you understood where I was coming from...
kiks (12759) 2016-09-01 4:39
