This photo was taken in Gauja National Park (in Sigulda).. Gauja NP was founded in 1973, and it was the first national park in the territory of Latvia at that time. It focuses mainly on nature protection but it is also used for educational and leisure tourism.. Gauja NP includes the Primeval valley of the Gauja River and together with its tributaries it forms a particularly original landscape.. Sigulda is situeted on both banks of this river.. :) and is main autumn-attraction of tourists and Latvians as well.. Because it's unique landscape is colored in wonderful red, orange and brown colors.. :) That a great thing to see..
I like Sigulda myself very much. And that day 1 October, 2006 went there looking for some autumn photos.. but that autumn was quiet hot.. and i came there to early.. but Sigulda looks great in all seasons.. And is always enjoyable..
