A shot taken at the end of the flood time on the Nerl river.
The Nerl river is the left tributary of the Klyazma River which belongs to the Volga's basin. The length of the river is 284 km (176 miles). The area of its basin is 6,780 km² (2,620 sq mi). Upstream the river flows among high hills grown with conifer forests. In its middle flow the river's estuaries occupy wide fields.
The main source of water for the river is melted snow. The Nerl River freezes up in November - December and stays under the ice until April.

The colours are sublime, the simplicity do the rest.
Excellent photo where I can see that you have placed the grass in line with the depression in the river shape. Soft light, strong and beautiful gradient, extreme and efficient location of your horizon line.

Even if flooding normally means trouble you have succeeded to deliver tranquillity in a very relaxing way. Well saturated colours caught my attention already from the thumbnail.

Nice composition on this shot with the use of the grass in foreground to sit the composition and to provide color contrast between the yellow-brown of the grass versus the deep blue of the water.
The shores in background provide then a good sense of depth to this landscape.
vladic (4323) 2011-05-27 10:50
Magnifique la simplicité de cette image, j’aime beaucoup toutes ces nuances des couleurs agréable à regarder. La lumière est très bien maîtrisée et souligne délicatement les détails.

I am enjoying catching up on your gallery of images. This is really well done, perfectly framed with the exposure just right. You have captured the water so well, I like how dark it is towards the bottom of the frame, excellent colours. Thanks for sharing.

beautiful colors. I like the blue and reflection of the water. Good composition. A nice view from Russia.
kato (11630) 2011-07-28 15:29
You're capturing well this scape by excellent tone, so it's impressive to see the river with some blue layers.

Kielia (22913) 2011-11-25 6:21
this is one of my favorites in your gallery. It is magical - despite the dramatic flood - both concerning the light and the colors. A wonderful composition with an atmosphere that makes the viewer feel calm. My compliments, it's really beautiful!
kiks (11749) 2011-11-25 7:01
I love the simplicity and widness of this image. Teh colors with the contrast between yellow and the diferent blue tones is awsome.
yoke (222) 2012-03-30 4:57
Beautiful color contrast in Deep blue and yellow, it has really strong visual impact.
Very good effect that shadow off area at left corner on water brings dramatic mood , though I don't know if you intended or not. River is like a mirror.
Zengi001 (2395) 2012-04-12 22:52
Gerat minimal composition with excellent evening light! Use of any polarizer filter?
kennyblack (4207) 2012-04-14 6:15
Simple enough, but the composition have great 'visual effects are more of normally expected. I particularly like the diagonal shadow created in 'water, the bush in the foreground and the beautiful background. Excellent quality and resolution.
The best Regard 's have a nice weekend ... Marino
