On the late afternoon of a beautiful finnish autumn day, some men are going about one of the favorite pastimes of finnish men, that is fishing.
This scene was spotted just some kilometers north of the small town of Kerimäki in eastern Finland on lake Puruvesi.

ce paysage d'automne est splendide avec le coup de projecteur qui illumine la forêt et la barque de pêcheurs.

This is a superb composition showing Nordic beauty at its best. The reflections in the quiet lake are fantastic and the red boat is a perfect complement to the green and yellow widerness. I bet you were extremely pleased to watch this and very glad you brought your camera for this magic moment.

The beautiful Finnish nature is presented here on its most magnificent.
A quiet but wonderful autumn scene with splendid seasonal colours.
The reflections are superb. It's perfect that these fishermen had chosen a red boat.
Best regards, Paul

The red boat is indeed the little detail that catches the attention here. The landscape here is very beautiful, very Nordic! Beautiful sunshine too. Were there many mosquitoes here?
rychem (13584) 2013-10-06 9:48
Beautiful autumn photo, I like the light and very nice reflection, the red boat is an eye catcher

Ho avuto la fortuna di andare in Finlandia e mi ha colpito la tua fotografia perchè riflette in maniera perfetta la bella atmosfera che ci sanno regalare i suoi boschi immersi nei laghi.
Una luce calda e l'atmopsfera limpida come solo a quelle latitudini è possibile hanno reso possibile un simile spettacolo incantato.
Te sei stato bravissimo nel cogliere l'attimo più bello e ne hai tratto una composizione stupenda in un contesto nel quale nitidezza e colore trionfano senza alcun eccesso, ma con infinita naturalezza.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

bellissimo scatto, la natura è essenziale e bella, il riflesso ne sottolinea i colori e la luce li esalta.
Composizione perfetta e precisa, la barca è nel posto giusto e crea un ottimo punto di osservazione.
Periko (1377) 2013-10-06 20:53
Beautiful. Splendid light.
It reminds me of a postcard that I received from Finland 30 years ago.
macjake (45574) 2013-10-06 22:18
what a beautiful photo my friend!
maybe one of your best posted shots yet.
its all about the lighting in this one! the golden light mixed with all the greens and a little splash of red/orange of the boat.
whats not to love about the peaceful scene, excellent shot
macondo (18461) 2013-10-07 3:24
This one is a super landscape photo, taken in a wonderful early evening light. There are the beautiful hints of Autumn in the light. The sky is superb, and you timed the shot well to place the boat away from the centre where it balances the reeds on the right side. The red colour makes a great highlight in a shot like this with so many trees. It looks superb in the beta site - I think you got the resolution right for this one, 1200 x 800 is enough, and most of us can view it without having to scroll.
dkmurphys (42431) 2013-10-07 4:48
Splendid atmosphere on the lake. Everything looks great, perfect shot.
Have a fine new week.
Noel_Byrne (13234) 2013-10-07 8:49
this is so vivid, the colors literally pop out of the screen and grab the attention of the eye. To have this wonderful scene reflected so perfectly in the lake is a huge bonus. Beautiful shot, thanks
All the best
ktanska (22648) 2013-10-07 11:23
A lovely autumn view from a lake. I like the rich variety of colours like golden tones of those reeds. On such a day it doesn't really matter if you don't actually catch any fish!
mcmtanyel (5173) 2013-10-09 9:40
Looking at this photo makes the following words flash through my mind:
Reflections, lovely reflections;
Lake, tranquil lake;
Boat, red boat;
Sky, ominous sky;
Sun, golden sun...
All in harmony,
All painting a serene picture.
EstudioChispa (1694) 2013-10-09 12:45
I believe the correct English word is "bucolic," meaning pastoral but also imbued with an idyllic quality. You have defined the word here, Daniel!
Vitaly (971) 2013-10-10 5:29
A chic autumn picture! Red boat gives additional charm to this shot. Reflection and sky are very good.
COSTANTINO (44087) 2013-10-10 13:18
what could I say for this superb composition?
only greetings for this great work
shot with excellent lightness and sharpness
peaceful atmosphere perfectly executed
jcpix (6504) 2013-10-10 16:54
This is the type of light I think we all hope for each and every time out, simply gorgeous!
I was having a conversation with Russ the other day in regards to composition, and I used this picture as an example. The virtual horizon is placed center within this frame, breaking the "vaunted" rule of thirds...and you know what, it doesn't make one bit of difference if you ask me. In fact, I think it's more powerful because of that aspect.
Everything about this arrangement I find incredibly pleasing. Even more important for me is the atmosphere and tranquility that exudes from this image. This really is a wonderful shot from top to bottom. Impressive! Have a great day ahead. Take good care.
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-10-10 20:23
Daniel, this is a fantastic shot in Finland at the lakes, beautiful and flat area with beautiful lakes, I have never been there during autumn and this image is a real treat and to me an ward winning picture in any aspect!! my compliments great job!!
I wish I could be in Greece picking up olives not only mine but your mom´s too...it is a lot of hard work but very rewarding...I have about 143 olive trees and every year we produce fine extra virgin organic olive oil...no chemicals of course all natural..if you decide to go and help out let me know....
claudeD (26916) 2013-10-11 4:01

With regards from Luxembourg
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-10-12 7:39
An uplifting image, eliciting an emotional response can't be bad can it? Beautifully composed and wonderful colours for its looks so peaceful and the stunning clear reflections. The eye catching boat anchors the focus in so strongly. Well done, TFS
annjackman (15487) 2013-10-12 7:43
This is a superb autumn scene. The golden light is gorgeous and the red boat placed perfectly in the frame. The sharpness is excellent and the reflections amazing.
Kind Regards, Ann
kato (9500) 2013-10-12 8:53
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful autumn landscape in Finland suburbs. It's very tasteful for combination of the calm lake, yellow reed and trees dyed autumnal tints. And, the reflection ptojected to the lake draws out an additional good effect in this image as well as red boat on the lake.
adores (30783) 2013-10-16 15:34
Really beautiful! The landscape, the little red boat so well placed, the reflection... The soft light makes it just perfect. A really good autumn shot!
Energysavingelk (727) 2013-10-17 11:47
of course it's a national stereotype about Finnish life and nature which you supported. But you did so well...
Regards from the Middle Rhine
SWEETFREEDOM (19902) 2013-10-20 11:13
the warm light you had is beautiful as well as the early autumn colors and reflections, the red little boat contrast very well with the rest of the picture.
Kielia (21521) 2013-10-23 5:13
ein sehr schöner Beweis dafür, dass der Herbst die lohnendste Jahreszeit ist, was Photos betrifft. Du hast eine wunderbare Stimmung eingefangen, die unmittelbar vom Betrachter empfunden wird. Licht und Farben sind phantastisch. Kompliment!
bayno (18334) 2013-10-24 9:19
here we have a fantastic light and a wonderful reflection......the compo is very well made with incredible details and dept....more we have the boat to break the silence of the lovely location....very good one...
delpeoples (48576) 2013-10-28 21:14
This is among your best photos. I find it inspiring, enchanting and mesmerising. I love the light shining on the central trees and rushes and of course being reflected on the water. The addition of the people and the red boat, again in perfect sharp reflection) add a sense of movement, tranquillity and an element of interest and contrast. The sky is gorgeous too, contributing also to that sense of movement versus stillness. Congratulations, this one's a cracker!
NorthernLight (1131) 2013-11-11 8:54
das ist der Norden, wie ich ihn mag!
Ein zauberhaftes Licht und eine traumhafte Stimmung!Das rote Boot ist das Sahnehäubchen auf dem schönen Bild.
Alles Gute aus Schweden
rigoletto (32746) 2013-11-14 7:13
hi daniel. i remember well when russ and jason were discussing about the 1/2 composition here. for me it works perfectly, thanks a lot to the red boat which is the actual element that had to be on some 1/3 spot on the left. great light, sharpness and colors. this is somewhere to find peace.
mkamionka (27051) 2013-11-28 3:45
this is exactly how I imagine Finland.
Fantastic light resulted in a unique ambience here. The trees are nicely reflected. Sky is brilliant and the boat adds so much life and interest here.
