This picture has been taken from one of the bridge in Andorra.
The Gran Valira is the biggest river in Andorra. It flows through the capital, Andorra la Vella, and exits the country in the south near the Spain-Andorra road border crossing.
I hope you will enjoy this photo from the little country.

Hello barbara, this is a very nice image here. I've heard so many things about this little country. What i see from the image is that nature blends with the man-made structures. Lovely red flowers on the side there. Good take.

a very colorful photo!
for obvious reasons i like the colors, the depth, the tunnel-type-views, and the very interesting architecture.
having the forrest in the bg gives a nice combination of man versus nature here :)
enjoy your day

A nicely lit perspective along this rushing river. Good choice of exposure to capture the fast moving waters and bring a sense of movement to the composition. Lovely ochre-toned façades.

A lovely view from this city, adn the light is beautiful here. I could have sworn that this was a road from the thumbnail, so fascinating to see its actually a river! I suppose a lot of modern roads follow the paths of ancient rivers, so probably not surprising to see the familiar curve of the streets as we see here.
Nice unique capture, thank you!
All the best

Une belle photo de cette rivière qui descend, la prise en contre plongée donne une perspective favorable
Lumière d'un côté et ombre de l'autre
Une composition bien équlilibrée

Ces petites cascades en forme de déversoirs sont magnifiquement mises en image.
Image haute en couleur.
Très bonne soirée.

Have a nice day.

Taki górski potok płynie zazwyczaj w wąwozie, u Ciebie płynie w architektonicznym wąwozie :)))
dobrze zrobione i skomponowane

it's very unusual to have a river flowing between the buildings on a street. Great perspective and tender light. Good job.

Barbara, my compliments, you have got the best of this ugly place, the nature is splendid in this small country by the city of Andorra la Vella is really ugly.

nice the view as the presentation of the river that penetrates the city with the side buildings to create depth and perspective in the scene.I like the brilliant light as enhance the vivid colours of it.

a strange view with its elements inside acting strange roles. as if the river hard by the appartements is emanating from that dense woods.

Bardzo ciekawe miejsce - górska rzeka p³ynie wsród osiedla nowoczesnych domów w pastelowych kolorach. Mi³o musi byæ mieszkaæ nad t± dziwna wodna ulic±. Piekne kolory i niesamowita ostro¶c obrazu.

Lovely shot of this part of Andorra. Beautiful warm colours and good POV giving great depth to the shot. Love the way the railings hve been decorated with flowers.

C'est assez étonnant de voir ces immeubles resserrés autour du torrent. Une bonne photo ce cette ville andorrane.

Great capture of this river running through this village. Good pov and dof with nice details. Good lighting. Well done, tfs.

A river in the middle of the city, why not. Some have a road in front of their home others a river, I would prefer the latter. Excellent light management and POV. Well done

The capture of the power of the river is an asset to the composition. The length of the river is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the facade of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancin g the colours. Have a nice day.

A rarely seen locale on Trek Earth so thanks for posting. Good natural dual perspective added here by the channelled stream which leads the eye deep into the image towards the vanishing point. The blue sky contrasts well against the warm color tones of the building's facades. Tfs!

Beautiful to see how this river cuts the district with the larger apartment buildings.
I like these warm tones of the buildings in comparison with the dark river and the green forested hill on the background.
Best regards, Paul
