A pleasant evening light illuminates a rowing boat on the shores of lake Simpelejärvi in eastern Finland.
Lake Simpelejärvi and the region around the small town of Parikkala are renewed as a paradise for bird watching. Both lake Simpelejärvi and nearby Siikalahti are considered as the best observation spots for bird lovers in Finland. This is due to the proximity of lake Ladoga, some 35km to the east, that influences the microclimate of the region and makes the vegetation especially lush and attractive for many a local or migrating bird. There have been over 70 species of birds recorded here.

Bonjour Daniel ,
Quelle belle composition avec une merveilleuse lumière du soir qui ajoute à l'atmosphère paisible ! Le contre jour est particulièrement bien géré .

J'aime ce côté poétique, la brillance de l'eau et le feuillages qui encadre le tout, bien cadrer la barque jaune, très belle réalisation

Lovely rustic, bucolic scene. The inclusion of the little rowing boat in the foreground is of course crucial to the overall effect.

Very nicely composed picture. The shiny lake is perfectly framed with trees, excellent colours and details.

Fantastic composition. A very artistic and very sensitively picture. I love the natural framing with the branches of trees, and depth that is achieved with the lake in the center. I like the glare on the water they bring some magic touch. Really a very nice picture.

The vertical format worked well with the composition. I like the reflections of the sun on the water. Good lighting control and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Beautiful summer view from a Finnish lake. Framing with green foliage is excellent and sparkling backlight on the water works well. Rowing boat is really an essential part of such a lake view.

Salut cher Daniel
What an idyllic scene, with such unusual light for an early evening. The yellow boat is delightful and contrasts beautifully. Some purists would say you cut it too tight in the foreground, but I like what you have done here.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing

Superb photo. The wooden boat is an excellent focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground boat, the green trees and the nice lake water with beautiful reflections, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong.
Very well done.
P.s. For my Swiss Laufenburg photo I've used Nikkor 80-400mm lens at 155mm.
Sorry for my slow response, but my access to internet is not very regular during my travelling.

Very beautiful and pleasant-looking picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me! Maybe, I'd just include a bit more of the boat on the lower fg!
TFS - congrats,

Wonderful composition. I love it! The foreground works very well. It can be used as a beautiful holiday magazine cover..:-)

I really like the vertical composition here. This scene is so inviting and tranquil. The trees frame the shot beautifully and the sparkling water is a great touch. Great shot!
swapankumarroy (2849) 2014-08-09 3:33
Wonderful vertical panorama of a lake and its boat. Lush green with a beautiful blue background made it lovely. Good detailing, color control specially green with a yellow boat, POV and light, everything you controlled perfectly.
best wishes and have a nice weekend, good luck.

Hello0 Daniel - Peacefulness is the name of the game and you present this scene with an amazing dreaminess; I think it is the light softly reflecting off the water that boosts the mood.
A fine shot with impeccable detail.

Lovely view, this is how I remember the Finnish lakes from my visit three years ago. Great composition with the excellent inclusion of the boat in the foreground. I love the light too, such tranquility!

un endroit paisible qui inspire le calme (bien qu'il doit etre infesté de moustiques;-) )

An excellently composed nature picture with greenery at all sides, a beautiful shimmer of light on the water and a lovely long view to the (green) horizon.
The yellow boat makes an attractive foreground.
Best regards, Paul

this scene is very beautiful, your composition describes the scenery in an elegant way and suggests a story as well. The yellow rowing boat, complete with oars, is attractive and points to a route towards the luminous background. I like very much the depth of the scene and the precision of the textures. The foreground foliage makes a wonderful frame and also filters the light. The brilliant light creates a lovely effect on the surface. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
