A backstreet, in the town of Listvyanka, about 70 kms east of Irkutsk, on the shores of Lake Baikal, (1 km away, over on the right & off frame). It rains here a lot, in summer.
Listvyanka is located on the southern end of massive Lake Baikal, which contains more fresh water, than all the Great Lakes of North America combined.

A good capture of this interesting street, made all the more so of course by the wonderful reflection in the puddle. The wall adds perspective and takes the eyes to the tree covered hill. Very good light, colours and clarity.

Lovely reflections here and again, interesting architecture ! The building in the far seems to belong to richer persons... Probably 2nd residencies ?
Very interesting, TFS,

Beautiful photo, great "mixture" of landscape and architecture, the partial reflection is an excellent detail! Wonderful saturated colours! Congratulations!

Nice shot, showing the typical Russian town. The colours are particularly good, with the red roofs of the buildings really standing out and providing a nice contrast with the green trees. The person walking in the distance is a nice touch too. Well done!

Nice view from the Baikal region.
These houses look like not usual, but like cottages belonging reach inhabitants of Irkutsk.

Jolies couleurs, beau bois sur la coline barrière.bonne netteté de l' ensemble.

Des couleurs à la ChrisJ, parfaitement reconnaissables dans la galerie... Jolie composition, avec ce bout de reflet dans l'eau.

The roofline of the house is perfectly relected in the puddle. The variety of colours make this a wonderful shot.
