This is a super place to walk and admire the countryside, on Iken shores in the start of spring.
Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!
The palm and may make country houses gay,
Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,
And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!
The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,
Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,
In every street these tunes our ears do greet:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!
Spring, the sweet spring.
Poem, by Thomas Nashe.

beautiful landscape and lovely spring mood!
I like especially the way you created the FG here.This shrub in the FG makes a great focal point for the scene and creates also very nice 3D effect.
Have a nice day

Lepa poema Thomas Nashe ...
Lep pogl;ed i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazno mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Dobar rad i kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepa panorama.
Lepo vreme probudilo je prirodu iz zimskog sna.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

This is really quite beautiful. Perfectly composed and with superb light and colours. And, amazing depth. Nature photography of the highest order.

this is a very attractive spring photo, where you have also captured a rather typical sky. The contrasting colors make the overall impression very beautiful and the blackthorn in bloom is a good eye-catcher. The composition is excellent. My compliments also for the lovely poem!

Many fine parts in this picture, the foreground flowers add a very clear springtime feeling. The colour of the reed is very fine against the blue sky. Interesting note, I can identify the first and the last bird but what birds say "jug-jug" and "pu-we"?

if it wasn't for the blossom covered branches of the bush in the corner one could think it is a summer view with all the ripe colors of the reeds which catch an eye straight away. The white flowers create lovely contrast and add very much to the image. Pretty light and well managed too.
Thanks for sharing

The tall grass, the pastel light, the sping flowers breates of fresh air and welcomes spring. This picture is so 'spring in the air' shot...one can feel the freshness immediately..Well done!

A very relaxing springtime shot so well composed and wonderful soft colours, I think we can sit and stare at this for ages. I love the natural lead-in caused by the awesome golden reeds shrouded by the amazing skyscape blessed by such brilliant weather - what a contrast there! 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

I like very much how your composition matches the layers of textures and colours that make up this vast and lovely scenery. The blossomed branches in the foreground are introduced in an elegant way and provide pleasant contrast to the layers that still convey a wintry mood. The depth is superb and there's excellent definition of colours and textures all over the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
