It is indeed the earliest spring I've seen so far. The shot was taken in the first decade of March almost free from snow already, and now two weeks later there's neither snow nor ice on the rivers at all. And it's for the first time on my memory there'll be no spring floods this year.

dopo tante visioni di mare una foto della tua Russia colta molto bene in una bella e fredda giornata nella quale cielo azzurro e neve convivono in attesa della primavera.
Bella la composizione, impeccabile la nitidezza e piacevoli i colori.
Ciao e buona serata

Attractive wintertime picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, grey & white borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities that truly pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

a shot that highlights the weather conditions and superb light. Beautiful and moody, a fine image that captures the moment. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. I think it is wonderful that the winter wasn’t strong this year.

Hello Marina ,
In my region (Bretagne) , we have not strong winter , but I can imagine how you're wainting for the springtime and the end of the snow and ice season .
This is here a beautiful composition , where we can feel the rays of sun .

really this Sping was coming very earlier with the trees to have been blossomed already here in Athens,with the temperature to climb in 22o C.
Very nice the scenery with the house to be found at the edge of the swollen river,making the scene very attractive.Excellent presentation.

Looking at your picture, the notion of spring may seem distant to some, as there are still some patches of snow out there and the river seems frozen in the shot. But it should not be far behind now anyway as you said. A simple and beautiful image of this winter scene, nicely composed and well exposed, with the blue sky adding a lovely warming feel.

Yes, I believe we're all enjoying an early spring this year.
I like the luminosity of this picture and the contrast between the red columns and the blue sky.
Good that you included that viewpoint on your picture.
Best regards, Paul

This here is an excellent composition with the sun lit balcony and the frozen river. What a view it would be from that pavilion when the river is in full flow. I like the play of light and shadow on the pavilion. Nice shot at the confluence of departing winter and arriving spring. Colours and clarity are superb as usual. Thanks for sharing.

there is some snow on the ground but the spring spirit is noticeable. I am in Italy at the moment and last night we had massive snowfall - about 40cm.Good for skiing but I will not post any springtime photos yet :-)
I like the composition of your picture with the bright colored wooden garden house on the bank of the river and delicate trees adding to the view without covering it. Nice and fresh colors and lovely light.
Thanks for sharing

The "early spring" of your country, is like "heavy winter" to us, Marina.
Yet,I see a beautiful location with a veranda looking over the river, a nice place to sit and enjoy the view.
Nice tak4en from the perspective chosen, included well the water with no ice(if you had not mentioned I'd be sure it was fozen).
abmdsudi (43718) 2014-03-24 10:11
Spring is around the corner again! It's finely shot with wonderful perspective effect in superb colors, brilliant light and good touch of snow field so very well collected. Exposure is exquisite, the splash of warm light and speck of vivid red is delightful. Simple but gorgeous image shrouded by the spotless blue sky, something we really miss in the tropic! Congrats.

Yes I think the world wide has had a mild winter compared to previous ones and here in the UK we have a very early spring, yippee.
Great Pov, on to this lovely landscape and viewing area.
Super colours, well managed light, splendid presentation, Tfs,

Excellent, well composed photo in superb light. I like the arrangement with the wooden pavilion and the view to white river ice.
Very well done.

Beautiful panorama of this lovely landscape, already announces spring we see the pavilion on the left, has definitely wonderful views of the river and forest, the trees give a nice graphic at the blue sky so clean.

Une composition bien cadrer et composer, bonne lumière et couleurs, une belle image d'un début du printemps
willperrett (7348) 2014-04-01 1:43
Lovely shot, well composed and lit, and an interesting note to accompany it. Maybe we've inherited your floods: you may have read about the Winter rains in the UK a couple of months ago, with thousands of acres of farmland and housing under water, railway lines washed away and so on.
