Another shot of Listvyanka, overlooking Lake Baikal. Apart from the main road restricting public access to the lake, I really didn't think other tourists comments that this place wasn't worth visiting, were justified. This section of the lake is around 70 km east of Irkutsk.
There are very few uploads of this locale, on TE, so I decided to add another.

it seems to be a nice architecture there with little towers at the houses and decorated facades with balconies and such. Very relaxing capture with the small spot of glancing sunlight at the bank and the large tree framing the capture.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Indeed we see very rarely pictures out of this area.
Two year ago have the Belgian TV an great reporting about this area, one in winter and one reporting in summer, very nice!
This gives a nice image about this area with the gigantic Baikal lake in background.
Nice composition and a nice trip reporting.
Thanks for sharing.

Interesting mix of a nice landscape and some remarkable architecture.

Again you utilised this wonderful, high POV but this time in the other direction. I like the way the over-hanging tree is silhouetted against the background light.

Nice view of the lake and I like that overhanging tree too, which adds a good near/far type of composition, really giving this a sense of depth. The lighting is good too, with the fading out of the mountains giving this a feeling of distance and size. Thanks for sharing!

Bonjour, mon ami Chris,
Merci de nous faire voyager à travers la Russie, encore un pays que je ne connais pas (il n'y a pas que la Russie que je ne connais pas !).
Aussi, je déguste vos images avec un immense plaisir.
Amitiés et bonne journée.
