Tomorrow's the last calendar day of spring and we're heading for the summer. So I thought of taking a glance back at spring's fresh colors that look so beautiful here after our long and cold winters.
The shot's taken at the Sudogda river, a right tributary of the Klyazma in Vladimir region. It's 118 km long. The river is wooded, the shore consists largely of meadows and swamps, particularly upstream.
On the river there are the towns of Sudogda and Muromtsevo as well as a number of villages, and formerly several small hydropower plants.

Hi Marina from Vladimir. beautiful image that conveys peace and harmony. The surface stillness of the water allowed for lovely reflections. beautiful colours and fine details.Your delicate "curtain' of leaves fills in nicely the upper part of the composition. Best wishes. Klaudio.

I just came across your splendid gallery because this fine image caught my attention. It is a simple composition but created with the eyes of the artist. Very beautiful light and harmonious colors. It is especially this excellent perspective that makes this image so attractive. My compliments!

It's a lovely scene!
I love those reflections in the water and these colors as defined.
And I like the branches that stick out, fall on the photo. And all shades of the landscape.

It is not the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen, but I like it. It seems so quiet, so peaceful, and your composition is excellent with the dead trees in the water and the branches on the top of the picture.

l'endroit est bien choisi pour faire la photo, dégagé sur cet étang, les reflets du ciel sont des plsu interessants et un avant plan branchu n'est jamais pour déplaire.
Couleurs et lumières parfaites.

Hello Marina - "Peace" beautifully framed by the delicate overhead branches. A wonderful mix of soft natural colours and lovely reflections. Super shot. Best regards Rosemary

You composed this very well, with the submerged & half submerged logs creating a very effective FG & lead-in. The reflection of the sky is beautiful & framing is very effective with the hanging foliage. Good work!

Beautiful picturesque place. The undisturbed wild nature. I love such places.
Colors, sharpness of your shot is excellent. Reflections on the water give a charm to your photo.

You're caturing well this nature by a good composition and excellent tone, so it's impressive and interesting to see mendering wide river and green nature with trees at left side. And, white clouds projected to the river gives additional good mood for the whole.
