Downstream from the Lillaz waterfalls, the small village built around the beautiful scenery within the eastern part of the Gran-Paradiso Park.
Looking over a bridge, I saw this flowers-pots mounted on a high pole, and mingle in fine contrast to the verdant & water surroundings.
Location of Lillaz: 45.5952, 7.3905

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Je n'ai jamais vu une telle cascade de pots de fleurs !
De plus, la présence d'une rivière en furie à proximité donne à l'ensemble un effet saisissant.
La réussite de cette composition est totale.

What an interesting way of displaying flower pots! I like the point of view, looking down the fast running river toward the village. The image is pleasantly lit and has lovely natural colours and exceptional sharpness.

The length of the river is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the scenery and the strengh of the currant of the river. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Amazing, slender stand at the pots of flowers on the bright mountain stream. Nice mountain town and high alpine in the background . Wonderful colors and perfect quality.

the elements that compose this natural view are all lovely and fascinating. I had never seen a pole decorated with flower pots, it is very impressive and your composition gives it a superb position where it attracts attention and also allows a delightful, deep and comfortable view of the river, village and mountain. Sharpness is marvellous, the natural details and textures are very interesting and refreshing. Your lighting is absolutely successful, the colours and contrasts make the picture very attractive and captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

A fascinating composition of this beautiful place, wonderful POV with that curious high stick, covered with pots, is a great complement to the beautiful view of the mountain river, the people and the rocky mountains.
Perfect both sharpness and brightness. Well done.
Have a nice Sunday.

Une jolie suite après la cascade, les maisons entre les arbres, la montagne en arrière plan plus sombre, le petit côté original avec ce poteau et cette cascade de pot de fleurs, belle présentation

bella immagine colta tra le montagne della Valle d'Aosta.
Originale questa colonna di vasi fioriti accanto alla sponda del fiume.
Mi piace la resa dell'acqua nel suo scorrere.
kordinator (21569) 2012-09-30 11:23
This place is so reminiscent of the favorite destination Randjelovic Pavle and me.
As the photograph was taken in my neighborhood.
Excellent quality of work.
maria-v1981 (10932) 2012-09-30 13:10

delpeoples (59482) 2012-10-01 5:06
A beautiful apline scene. The vertical frame was well-chosen and the lovely colours are so vivid and eye-catching. Excellent depth of field which has defined beautifully both the river and mountains beyond. Beautiful shot.
Un caro saluto
mirosu (16273) 2012-10-01 5:42
Thnaks for all your comments. If you passing by Montreux next time, try to arrange short stop over there. The Geneva lake promenade is excellent in Montreux. Nice walk with many parks, restaurants and coffee shops. Best time from March till October.
I like this photo excellently composed in vertical format. The fresh stream is nicely leading through the frame to the village houses and green hills in BG. The flower pots are very good focal point. Well done!!!!
clic (17931) 2012-10-01 6:31
Indeed, the thin totem composes an elegant attraction standing by the white waters lit by a spotlight for a dramatic clair-obscur picture.
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-10-01 9:09
Wow! Very interesting way to display those flowers! But how do they water the plants? I like the vertical format. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
lousat (95996) 2012-10-02 1:34
Hi Ike,a very nice and lucky light whit the shadow in background,great capture whit the big flower on the left like a natural border,impressive details as usual.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano
Royaldevon (41909) 2012-10-02 1:37
The tall vertical, with its display of flower pots, is perfect for your f/g and draws attention to the wall, the natural lead, alongside the stream, into the b/g.
Great depth of field and a multitude of interesting details, make this a fine shot.
Have a lovely day,
thebest (4276) 2012-10-02 2:26
I have never seen so many little flower pots on a tree - I wonder if it is a memorial or just a clever decoration of a bare tree.
I love the stream & all the greenery - lovely shot & well spotted.
nilotpal_patra (1688) 2012-10-02 4:37
Namaskar Ike Harel,

fabbs99 (17175) 2012-10-02 9:02
Great view of the water flowing down the hills.The shadow and sunshine are in good contrast to each other in the shot. Excellent choice of your angle this gives perspective and depth image.Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.TFS.
mesutilgim (96814) 2012-10-03 5:01
Wonderfull capture from Lillaz.
Very good chosen portrait format and a scne full of beauties and dynamism.
The post at left with flower pots is a real artisanal work. Maybe one of my next projects in my garden !
I wonder how they solve the problem of watering !!
TFS and best regards

Un beau cadrage de ce torrent avec une belle couleur de l'eau, de gros cailloux, et une belle perspective avec la montagne en arrière plan
Et ce cadrage et format nous permettent d'apprécier cette jolie plante à gauche et dont la couleur apporte une note complémentaire de couleur
mkamionka (39551) 2012-10-04 1:32
very interesting flower composition, well spotted. The surrounding is beautiful with the foreground lit with a great light as opposed to the shaded mountain. You have really seen a huge variety of places in one trip. Great idea which I will keep in mind for the future.
Bluejeans (64251) 2012-10-04 5:01
Ola Ike ,
Quem olha esta imagem parece que está na Suíça :) , muito agradável esta localidade com esta vegetação e este rio , gostei do poste com todos estes vasos cheios de flores bela ideia , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
jmdias (67283) 2012-10-14 2:30
in the thumbnail I thought this was a flower only and then it is a pole full of the flowers. haha.
very nice use of the framing catching it and the landscape and its beaty. well done.
jcpix (13930) 2012-10-28 8:13
I don't believe I've ever seen anything like that before, very interesting indeed. The color of those flowers really stand out against the blues and greens of the scene, very well composed to show off the contrast. Such beautiful natural landscape here Ike, great work in pulling it together, especially with the hard shadows on the background mountainside...which actually helps to create some depth. Nice recognition in capturing this image.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2012-11-02 10:46
A typical Aosta scene very nicely captured!
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-11-03 1:03
The vertical position creates an extra depth
and emphasizes extra the purple flowers left
in the picture and the river.
Composition and light managament are great.
magui (877) 2013-07-09 15:54
Very interesting photo, lovely place and nice colors.
fritzi007 (11904) 2014-08-26 14:37
ein super Foto, gratuliere dir!
Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag
silah (2798) 2015-02-01 14:01
This is a very beautiful scenery which is wisely composed and framed. It is very good idea mounting many flowers pots on pole. Also you had very good exposure for this shot. TFS my friends, GREETINGS, Salih.
fabianoleite (11971) 2015-04-27 15:10
Great composition. I like this tree spanning vertically in the composition contrasting with the distant mountains. Nice result, congratulations!
mcmtanyel (27094) 2016-01-22 21:56
Looking at the thumbnail, I thought that pole of flower pots was a flower itself, like the centuryplant. This is beautiful scenery, even without the flower pole.
ChrisJ (117199) 2016-10-03 12:40
At first I thought this was an Indian totem pole but on opening the thumbnail it soon became apparent it was a giant stacked set of lilac flower pots. The rushing stream at right is lovely too. Tfs!
