Yet another view of Lake Baikal, near Baikalskoe fishing village. There were some Russian holidaymakers, making the most of the brief summer, who were camping along the bay, amongst the trees.

A good point of view taking best advantage of the curving lakeside and the foreground rocks to bring depth to the scene. Good colours and clarity.

I suppose this is the warmest and greenest it gets in this massive part of the world. It looks like a very pleasant setting, lots of picturesque places to enjoy, but I doubt a swim would be possible. The cove to the right of your image very much reminds me of the foreshore in Queenstown. Sharpness is good and saturations are very rich which visually boosts the shot's appeal. Well done.

Hi Chris! excellent shot!The colours and the beautiful landscape impress. I like the view in the hills and the detail of lake with the clean vibrated green of trees and first level give in your composition depth and beauty

What a nice picture, Chris, very well built landscape composition with the stones forming a nice foreground and an inviting curve of the bay in the bg.

The POV is lovely. Great. It gives you a nice depth and the curve of the lake is good too.

Good vacation picture, without people.
Very well done, thanks for sharing.

This is an interesting view, showing the terrain and the vegetation around the lake. I imagined that it was all heavily forested, but evidently that is not true. The open grassland makes a very interesting landscape. As for the Russian campers, I have learned that the Russians love the outdoors, and to have fun, so I'm not surprised at all about that!

Hi Chris, just a bit overexposed, but colorful and from an excellent POV over the small beautiful bay.
azaf1 (15929) 2008-03-25 11:16
Nice composition of the Baikal. I like the POV that includes part of it and part of the forest

A very nice view from a great POV overlooking the area, which is nicely alternated by small forests and empty fields. Good inclusion of the bay of the lake on the right hand side. The many green tones are very pleasant to look at. Very well done!

The beach looks inviting, though everything else looks as cold and windy, just like siberian stereotypes, now that I read Matthew's comparison to Queenstown, I think that's quite accurate, before the comprehensive paving, building and when sheep outnumbered japanese visitors.

un paysage qui ne manque vraiment pas d'attrait.
Ses couelurs délavées nous changent un peu des vues habituelles.
Beaucoup de profondeur et de belles lumières.

Another beautiful landscape from Baikalskoe. Nice view at the hills covered by grass and forest.Lovely background with the rocks.Thanks for posting

Beautiful colour contrast with the blue of the Baikal lake against the surrounding greenery...two shades of green here. While you had shown the vast expanse of the lake earlier, this one shows a corner & the shore of lake. The shadow of the clouds on the hill slopes in the BG adds to the beauty.
