A view of Kandalama lake with lonely boats on the shore. It may look gloomy and dark but I absolutely loved the atmosphere. Everything was so still and tranquil, with a somewhat mystic feel brought by the dark light coming through the low clouds touching the mountains and the quiet sound of the falling rain.

Good evening Marina,
Inspite of the low light coditions and rain fallen, you managed a fairly good clear view over the lake.
The boats on shore looks as a katamarans mutations.

le tue foto mi piaccioni perchè sono sempre molto curate nella composizione ed anche questa non fa eccezione: semplicità, bei colori e giusta saturazione per una bella foto che sicuramente piace.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hello Marina, the overcast conditions have worked in your favour adding a really nice atmosphere to a well composed shot with good use being made of the overhanging branches to provide a good frame for the catamarans.
Lovely muted colours with very good clarity.

I like very much your composition and framing and how every element and colour contributes to the general perception of calmness. The four boats look like an art installation, so well integrated to the scenery. Their perspectives are wonderful too. The role and effect of the light are very intriguing. It brightens up the distant view and the lake but suddenly becomes weaker and renders darker colours in the foreground. A wonderful picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Great unity of blue color tone!

What a great atmosphere you captured here, the sense of rain is palpable and I can almost smell the vegetation. The boats themselves are a very interesting scene, but those mountains in the distance, partly in hill are really appealing. Thanks for sharing!

the scene is like an oasis of calmness and tranquility for me.You transmit excellently these feelings in this beautiful shot.I like also how you composed the scene with so clearly outlined foregroung and background.And the cloudy,rainy weather adds only more "mood" to the scene.
Have a nice weekend

what a fantastic impression of this fascinating region!
The light and the moody colors create a wonderful atmosphere. My compliments, also for the outstanding composition!

Your description of "tranquil" is probably the most fitting for this image. :) Very nice use of the minimal nature of the moment, a good example of keeping things plain and simple to maximize the atmosphere. Sure, it may have been cloudy without any direct sunlight, but the overall balanced exposure makes for a calm and pleasing setting none the less. Lovely composition also, the foregrounds boats are a nice centerpiece for the layers created within this arrangement. Have a good week ahead.
All the best,

The place is really peaceful. The upcoming storm made the sky very beautiful. And the boats also add the interest to the picture.
