There are literally hundreds of small streams & rivers like this (336), flowing into Lake Baikal, but only one flowing out. That is the Angara River, at the opposite end of the massive freshwater lake, a small part of which can be seen in the bg. A few houses can also be seen top left.
Baikalskoe is a small fishing village of about 4,000 people, sometimes spelt as Baykal'skoye.

An attractive landscape composition with some good colour contrasts. I like the diagonal placement of the little stream. Very good sharpness.

bello il POV dall'alto con il fiume di un intenso colore che scorre sotto.
Ambientazione di grande fascino con un 'inquadratura perfettamente eseguita.

great they of the river. The river banks are so nice. Distant blank is filled with nice trees and the nearer bank is filled with beautiful green land. Great contrast between the two sides. Nice colours and depth. Great capture. Tfs.
Have a nice evening.

A very interesting picture of a part of the world that is not so well represented here on TE. The forms of the streaming river here is also quite interesting. The colours are great but river banks look very eroded.

Nice one, Chris, I like that you frequently present the images from the far corners of Russia, where nature is still relatively unspoilt...

Strong contrasts and a beautiful luminosity on this photograph. I like much the pleasant blue color of the river, but it seems that the level of water is low but the photo was taken in July, it was to be hot… Beautiful and interesting photograph, thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,

Bonjour mon ami,
une scène de nature très sauvage, un peu abandonnée dirait-on même. Les couleurs sont vives et naturelles, les lumières adoucies, bien maitrisées.
Un bel hommage à cette région.

Amazing river, amazing landscape. Wonderful colors.

The trees are framing well the river. The point of view takes my eye toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. There is a good contrast between the colors of the river and the colors of the trees. Have a nice day.
