The photo shows the Füsing Au (a small river that drains the landscape Anglia in the Northeast of Schleswig-Holstein) near Schleswig.
The land bordering streams and rivers are unique ecosystems called riparian areas. Riparian areas are transitional zones that exist between a body of water and the surrounding drier upland. These areas occupy only a small part of the total watershed area, yet they play an important role thus acting as buffers, moderating flow, temperature, and the amount of nutrients and sediment transported to the water from the surrounding landscape. As such, their influence extends well beyond the small area they occupy, providing numerous ecological benefits.
Like people, riparian areas need to be healthy to function properly. Degraded unhealthy riparian areas tend to have: patchy or scrubby plant growth, rounded stream banks, eroding banks that are undercut or sloughing, muddy water and limited biodiversity for wildlife. The Füsing Au river banks are relatively healthy ecosystems.

nice and calmly the scenery with the riparian to creates depth and perspective in the image.I like the created reflections as the excellent light and the colour management of it.

A very beautiful and peaceful scenery here. Do you always have this very beautiful weather here in S-H? It really looks like that day in December, when we spent one day in this area... I appreciate the map view here too! An interesting note and a very well composed picture.

A simple composition but quite beautiful. Lovely soft light and agreeable natural tones. Excellent sharpness. I like the balance between the two trees.

in your picture this place looks very peaceful and quiet. The little houses in the distance help to crate this rural character of the picture. I like the timing with which you took this photo - the afternoon sun made the colors slightly warmer and therefore the whole scene gained much more attractiveness. Good POV and well balanced composition.
Thanks for sharing

Der Fluss,mit den Pflanzen im Uferbereich,erschafft eine tolle Perspektive im Bild,
eine tolle Aufnahme!

a wonderful description of this fine natural scenery. I like very much that you have given much space to the mirror-like water and that the landscape is so deep and comprehensive, even though your composition appears to be so simple. This simplicity is very elegant and leads us to notice details and textures and really get to know this area. I also like the well moderated intensity of the colours and the sense of tranquility. This area looks very clean and healthy. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

As often with your photos I learn more from the note than from the picture. I see a very pleasant, flat and quiet rural area and then I am given lots of information that explain the slightly odd title. The photo shows very pleasant contrasts of dry yellow weeds and fresh looking green grass, and of course this was a perfect day for fine reflections.

Splendid Pov, on to this peaceful meandering river.
Super natural colours, well managed.
Interesting to read in your note you call the area Anglia, as I live in the region of East Anglia Suffolk UK.

Warm regards MAlgo

Bonsoir, chère Harriet,
Quand la rivière s'amuse à jouer les miroirs de la nature, quel bonheur !
Belle réussite de perspective et de cadrage.
Une image champêtre très agréable à contempler.

A very relaxing shot so well composed and wonderful soft colours, a water theme landscape I think we can sit and stare at this for ages. I love the natural lead-in caused by the reeds with the amazing still water and its deep colour and reflection. Sometimes it just all comes together in one shot; light, depth, mood, tone and composition. It is all here and makes this a winner for me. Excellent image, TFS

What a quiet area, you choose a wonderful angle, classic but the most beautiful.
This cares for depth and perspective.
Lovely rural place at a good stroll.
A nice composition, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Bon rendu naturel et doux des teintes de ce paysage qui approchait du printemps.Très bonne lumière douce.

Wieder etwas gelernt ...
Das leicht wellige Angeln habe ich auch sehr scnön gefunden. Dein Foto zeigt irgendwie, dass diese Landschaft "in sich selbst ruht". Dieses vom Schilf begleitete stille Flüsschen mit seinen Spiegelungen führt wunderbar ins Bild hinein. Ruhe! Herrlich ...!
Ein schönes Wochenende aus dem südlichsten Westfalen - heute wieder grau, kühl und feucht!

C'est une très belle vue, un endroit calme d'où il se dégage une bonne atmsophère.
marina7 (8053) 2014-03-23 12:26
looks like home to me, just a little bit more groomed:))
Lovely natural light and colors, very tranquil mood. The perspective with the river leading to the houses is really nice.
Thanks and best wishes!

Good perspective created by the canal. The contrast between the blue and the warm tones of the ripe grass is well seen and shown here. The tree and its reflection in the FG anchors the shot well. Good work!
ikeharel (55146) 2014-05-04 0:46
Good morning Harriet,
Fine clear view and depth along the canal. Details shown beautifully, bright day allowed a nice blue sky reflection on water, contrast the yellow bushs and green fields.
Have a nice Sunday,
