I think Gert, Benny, Rosemary and Luciano remeber this place in Kandy.
It is the second-largest city of the island and the capital of Central Province of modern Sri Lanka. Its geographic location has made it a major transportation hub in the island: while Kandy being the gateway to the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka, the city can be reached by major motorways in every direction of the island. The railway line from Colombo, the sea port on the western coast runs via Kandy to the farthest point of Badulla in the Central Highlands. The main roads Colombo-Kandy and Kandy-Nuwara Eliya are two of the most scenic roads of Sri Lanka; Colombo-Kandy road passes through rubber plantations and rice paddies, Kandy-Nuwara Eliya road cuts through paddy fields and seamless tea plantations. Both roads claw their way up winding, rounding over the rings of hills. Currently feasibility studies are afoot for another highway between Colombo and Kandy via Kadawata and the scenic city of Katugastota.

The misty atmosphere is very appealing. I like the point of view looking across the river. Also, the soft light and pleasant colours. The overhanging branches make a good frame and give the image depth.

Magnifique prise de vue bien encadrée naturellement par la végétation. Jolie maison au bord de l'eau et belle atmosphère brumeuse matinale. Excellente photo.
Toutes mes amitiés et bonne semaine,

I like this picture very much.
The misty background with some definition is ideal for making the very pleasing buildings stand out.
Also I like the branches framing the picture.

Fine misty view of classical Sri Lanka framed by the tree limbs, across the shimmering water. The waterfront wall looks especially artistic in repeating arch patterns, with trees intermingled to soften the buildings.

More than 'Morning in Kandy, it's a "morning glory" given the muted backdrop that leaves all the spotlight to the exotic buildings crowned of laced greenery for a dab of subtlety.

lovely soft light that imparts a really sensual atmosphere to this beautifully framed view. Exquisite detail and a tantalising vista.

this scene is so peaceful, its amazing that this is also such an important transport hub. I love that you framed this beautiful architecture with the trees like this, I feel like I am peering out into a secret hidden place.

Thanks for mentioning me. How could I ever forget the magnificent railway station of Kandy :-) :-)
So maybe after all this was some kind of temple :-). Anyway it's a good photo with a pleasant morning haze and fine silvery tones of the water. The branches coming from nearly all directions surround the tmple very nicely.

Beautiful place and beautiful architectures too bad about the smog (that's smog right?), it appears that most big cities in Asia are having pollution problem. I like your pov and it has good dof with nice details in spite of the smog. Well done, tfs.

Hello dear Serghei,
What a spectacular view and beautifully captured like so many of your other photos. What makes this scene so beautiful is the hazy air between the foreground and the buildings across the water, reminiscent of a veil. It reminds me of a time we saw the Golden Pagoda in Kyoto. The depth of field is very good, with the hanging branches in sharp focus.

Beau point de vue sur ces maisons en bordure de l'eau. Belle lumière dans une atmosphère légèrement brumeuse. Bon cadrage avec les branches des arbres. Bien fait.

How is winter in Perm? I hope that the big frosts are already gone. We have a bit of spring already. So many people were there and not me :(. Fine view of Kandy, a bit misty and mysterious. Excellent shot, inviting.

I love your POV with the tree branches around the whole frame,also the architecture looks lovely,but I think I´m not the only one who think it´s the soft,warm morning light,which steals th eshow here and makes the scene so unique and delightful.
Have a nice day

I liked it very much, for a very nice hazy misty background.
Framing beautiful, looks great with a nice frame of tree branches.

Beautiful view from Kandy. Love the misty atmosphere and the soft light on the famous Tooth temple. The view is nicely framed with the trees in the Fg. Nicely taken, thanks for sharing.

wundervolle Morgenstimmung, gratuliere!

Nice shot, the colors are natural and well balanced framing and composition. However the picture is a little crooked ... damage.
josepmarin (58359) 2014-03-02 13:55
you have caught beautifully a nice atmosphere in this photo, I like the misty background, where the fantastic architecture stands out in the middle of a green forest, and reflects itself on the water.
The contrast with the branches in foreground, which we can see with a great sharpness, enhances the beauty of your composition.
A superb work, my friend.
