An old, authentic boat is passing the Maroni River with its adapted external engine. The driver modified its style too and added a roof to create more comfortable one for protecting the passengers from sun and powerful tropical rains of region. The next shore is small town of Albina / Suriname. Taken from another boat while starting to go same direction with them; From Saint-Laurent du Maroni (French Guyana / French) to Albina (Marowijne / Suriname)
French Guiana (French: Guyane française, officially Guyane) is an overseas department (French: département d'outre-mer, or DOM) of France, located on the northern coast of South America. Like the other DOMs, French Guiana is also an overseas region of France, one of the 26 regions of France, and is an integral part of the French Republic. Like metropolitan France, its currency is the euro. The prefecture is Cayenne. More info is here French Guyana... (UPDATE 1st of April, 2009 : I added this paragraph and changed the title of my photo from "passing river" to "jump to South America from European land" because thought this is more informative)
Maroni or Marowijne (French: Maroni, Dutch: Marowijne, Sranan Tongo: Marwina-Libya) is a river in South America. It originates in the Tumuk Humak Mountains and forms the (disputed) border between French Guiana and Suriname. In its upper reaches, it is also known as the Lawa River, and close to its source it is known as the Marouini River. From Wikipedia...
Many cheers you to all and have a nice, wonderful weekend.

Kalimerhaba dear Ertugrul
I love those traditional boats. Every country has its style but they are all painted in bright eye catching colors like this one. Nice framing sharp and nice movement.
Have a lovely day and TFS

Another excellent documentary of the (aquatic :-) daily lifeof Suriname. Here the star is the colourful boat. I miss a bit that immense punch of expanse and perspective that characterises most of your photos of these rivers, but that isn't a flaw.
Have a nice weekend.

Du très bon travail

Merhaba Ertuğrul bey,
renk sudaki yansıma ve durgunluk harika görünüyor. ellerinize sağlık. selamlar.
fulvio52 (8314) 2009-03-29 20:26
This is what I call simple and extremely effective. What we got on display in this picture is all we need : perfect timing and a striking low POV for the best possible dynamics. Love it! Have a good day, buddy. I'll be seeing you.

belle photo de ce bateau qui file sur l' eau.
Jolies couleurs, bonne netteté et détails superbes, excelent reflets.
Pris sous ce bon POV, assé bas, la prise donne au bateau l' impression de glisser sur cette eau.
gunbud (34066) 2009-03-30 18:06
Wonderfully vivid capture of this colorful and unique water taxi streaming across blue sea and haszy tropical air.
The old boat and captain make a stunning reflection in the slightly riffling sea.
carper (96) 2009-03-31 3:17
I go for this one Ertugrul
a fine shot, good colors, fine capture and a fine quality.
I like it. have a nice day.
axiotea (21649) 2009-04-01 8:40
A well timed capture of the boat with the light enhancing its warm colors and the one of the man's t.shirt/hat. The reflections in the oily textured water is a pleasant detail to look at.
Cheers from Thailand

Hi Ertugrul, Good level horizon and the cropping is good to have more ahead of the boat than behind. Good colours throughout and interesting notes. TFS. Murray.

Welcome to the France page!
This border must be one of the most porous of the EC! And lots of smuggling is allegedly going on there! A good docu shot about the type pf boats in the region. Sharp and clean picture
JCG (35129) 2009-04-22 5:53
Area of France a little remote for me less for you !!! A low point of view which gives much more dynamics to the image. I like contrast between the colors of the boat and the remainder of the marine landscape. An alleviating photograph. Well seen Ertugrul and thank you for the note.
With all my friendships and with soon,
