Indus riverbed some 120 km downstream of Gilgit seems empty and barren in January. A seemingly lifeless desert. Yet, the forms of the Big and the Small speak a very strong language. Particularly morning and evening light bestows incredible life to the landscape. The river's shores are full of colorful pebbles, of any imaginable color and igneous or metamorphic rock type. Broken off somewhere high in the Karakorum peaks in the kingdom of ice and snow, and then rolled and rolled and rolled by water hundred, two hundred, three hundred kilometers downstream of this majestic river, and finally deposited at the place where my feet stand. They are here for a while only, for a geological moment only. After the first high water the stage will be designed anew. Nature is an event.

Good photograph here. You managed the light very well, to keep the sky well exposed and at the same time keep good details on the rocks, in the shadows. Good work.

This image is an eloquent telling of the cycle of nature. Your descriptive note takes me there directly. Good writing and beautiful photography. I couldn't ask for more.
Best regards, Amadej.

Hi Amadej--Very "real" colors in this shot. I want to pick up one of the colorful pebbles and feel its smoothness. You have a convincing command of the scene by presenting a formindable back-mid-foreground. I like that you chose a purposely leaning terrain to add drama to the scene.

Hola Amadej...Como siempre.. es un placer ver el manejo de las texturas, colores, iluminacion y un sinnumero de detalles en cada una de tus composiciones. Me da gusto ver un trabajo reciente tuyo, desde mis inicios en TE lo he estado observando y me fascina... observar tu trabajo tambien es un evento....saludos cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*
