Same location, different time's along the Yarkon river banks, yet on another Saturday morning stroll. Notable the change of colors between seasons.
When winter come to it's end, many seagulls fill in the river area.
Yarkon river where taken: 32.0973, 34.793
*** With this pic. I farewell goodbye, leaving Tuesday evening for our annual vacation, destination Germany's Black-forest & Alsace, France.

A pleasant peaceful perspective along the river. The row of perched seagulls contribute much to the atmosphere of the scene in this well presented image. Pleasantly lit with some attractive reflections; very good colours and clarity.

I feel right at home with all those Aussie eucalypts! Good sharpness and effective tight framing with nice reflections. And after massive deforestation from agent orange in Vietnam, I saw huge tracts of countryside also planted with fast growing eucalyptus trees. Nice repetition of the seagulls too. Tfs!

The reflections on the water of the Yarkon river are assets to the composition. The length of the river is giving depth and perspective to the scene. The presence of the birds is giving life to the picture. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.
marabu61 (10815) 2013-05-26 11:25
Very pleasant view over the Yarkon river with the city just visible in the far background. The light is beautiful and the colors great. The seagulls add just enough life to the scene.
Enjoy your vacation in the Black forest and the Alsace, both really wonderful regions just across the border where I live. Should you have time do honor us with a visit to the city of Basel in Switzerland, well worth a day trip too.

Interesting alignement of the birs on the pier
Good nice deep foreground
ourania (44398) 2013-05-26 13:09
a beautiful and elegant composition that includes many of your favourite themes from Yarkon river. The river looks calm and lovely, the reflections are wonderful and the seagulls have collaborated effectively with their nice arrangement. I like very much the depth and the diverse layers of interest and colours you have created within the vertical frame. You've used the perspectives very skillfully. The colours are relaxing and wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week and a marvellous vacation,

bellissima composizione, il taglio verticale è ben taglioto dalle diagonali del fiume e dei suoi componenti, compresi i gabbiani, con ottimi colori e bellissimi riflessi.
Ti auguro un bel viaggio, i luoghi scelti sono molto belli.
papagolf21 (99860) 2013-05-26 14:47
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Très belle présentation de ce petit coin où les oiseaux viennent se reposer et profiter du calme et de la beauté environnante.
Une image emplie de charme.
npecanhuk (74932) 2013-05-26 16:51
Lovely, pleasant-looking and beautiful picture!
Special regards to the vertical format, chosen pov, composition and exposure!
TFS - congrats,
mcmtanyel (21810) 2013-05-26 18:58
And I guess you have figured out that even a powerful bridge camera won't drive the seagulls away. The poor duck, on the other hand is shaking in her boots.
I like the reflections on the river. I also like the red posts against the greenish river. A nice photo with which to say good-bye. Enjoy your trip and I hope you take many more nice photos to share with us.
emka (95399) 2013-05-26 22:57
It took me a bit time to find the lone duck here. Pleasant photo from your daily walk.
have a wonderful holidays in Germany and France and bring many beautiful photos!
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-05-27 0:57
beautiful nature and nicely captured calm and tranquil mood of the place.It seems to be a real green oasis in the middle of vibrant Tel-Aviv.Even the seagulls appreciate the atmosphere and relax there:)
The vertical format suits here well.Also the overall quality and color scheme with so natural,but well-saturatrd colors are superb.
Wish You a safe trip and successful sightseeing in Germany and France
fabbs99 (17133) 2013-05-27 2:32
Excellent shot framing the river and the pigeons. Excellent choice of your angle this gives perspective and depth to the image.Nice colorful details and very pleasantly shown.TFS.
Royaldevon (37999) 2013-05-27 2:34
Good Morning Ike,
A delightful scene, perfectly tranquil, created by the smooth reflections in the water and the settled nature of the seagulls.
You have adopted a really effective viewpoint, which incorporates the f/g grasses and a good lead from the jetty, alongside the river.
Is that a little duck I see hiding on the riverbank?
Have a lovely day,
Bank holiday, here, in U.K. Bright but very chilly!
jhm (151570) 2013-05-27 3:45
Congratulations with your 900th picture on TE, I hope still 900 to see.
You chose a very nice angle, this image gives a lot depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant.
Excellent composition with the reflection in water.
Very well done, TFS.
Silvio1953 (140991) 2013-05-27 6:22
Ciao Ike, lovely composition with a lot of birds, fashinating reflections, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
kato (11630) 2013-05-27 8:26
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the winding calm Yarkon river, the river bank with rich greenery and many seagulls stoppong on handrail of small pier in early spring. And, the reflection projected to the river draws out an additional good effect.
clic (16885) 2013-05-27 16:27
So, as those carrier pigeons perched by Yarkon River, you will fly to Germany.
Don't forget to carry back samples of the 48 brands brewed there!
A mood of serenity is convied by that much greenery and the lovely reflects.
Have a nice stay!
Oceania (5202) 2013-05-28 5:55
This is truly a scenic river in Israel. Those white birds are resting on the bars, so peaceful.
Kielia (24077) 2013-05-28 7:10
I like this point of view with this bridge, providing an impressive depth of field. And the sea gulls are an extra feature to this postcard. The composition is excellent, my compliments!
Sonata11 (33763) 2013-05-28 21:11
very beautiful composition of nature with reflection in vertical format. Great capture of those birds. Wonderful execution with beautiful colors, sharpness, clarity like always. Tfs,
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-05-29 1:46
Great point of view and composition: the diagonal
lines of the wooden pier and fence creates a nice
depth in the picture and the vertical position
emphasize that extra. The Seagulls in the picture
are a nice extra.
Gigidusud (20825) 2013-05-29 14:59
A nice photo of the river with all these birds aligned on the pontoon and beautiful colors too. I like it!
nikkitta (17066) 2013-05-29 16:37

I wish you a good vacations time, and at same time I congratulate you for your 900th post presented here.
It's a nice composition, with the deep perspective of the river and its green shores, and with the presence of the seagulls resting in the wharf.
The image is sharp, has a good light and a beautiful colors.
Best regards, and enjoy your vacations,
delpeoples (57278) 2013-05-30 6:31
I saw this a few days ago, but have been away from TE due to work :( So finally I get to critique this lovely photo. It is luminous. A beautiful vertical frame and incandescent colours lining the beautifully lit river, which guides the eyes further into the frame. Superb shot, it really stands out.
siolaw (38292) 2013-05-30 23:36
Nice view with all those birds waiting for some boat to come around?! Colours and light look natural. Vertical frame gives quite some depth too.
Greetings and congrats for this is your 900th post!
adramad (44926) 2013-05-31 8:46
I resume my activity in TE, after two weeks of travel in Cordoba, Avila and Barcelona, where I enjoyed the company of Josepmarin and Pili, wonderful hosts.
Delicious this composition that conveys the atmosphere of calm, whilst calmly, with the presence of this line of seagulls so calm on the fence post, beautiful reflections in the still waters of the river.
Magnificent light and crisp, with a beautiful color.
Enjoy a great weekend.
mkamionka (35964) 2013-06-02 3:01
lovely place it seems so peaceful. I like the gathering of the seagulls although they have make the pier quite dirty :( Nice effect with the trees reflected in the water.
Very well done,
Indrasish (2939) 2013-06-06 1:07
Beautiful shot, nice perspective.. like the reflection of the trees..
jcpix (13914) 2013-06-09 18:49
I don't know if your familiar or not with the idiom "having your ducks in a row," but that's the first thing that came to mind when viewing this picture...granted, these aren't ducks but it's still applicable. :) Seeing their white perched on the red posts is lovely contrast tho the otherwise mainly green colors throughout. A fun image with sharp detail and solid focus from top to bottom. Nice observation and smart composition. Have a great week ahead.
Best wishes from the desert,
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-06-20 7:36
Looking at the bird droppings on the dock looks like this place is very popular stopping point. Nice and peaceful landscape. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-07-05 22:25
Hello Ike, beautiful natural scenery by the popular river, nice and relaxed atmosphere, always nice to stroll along the river and enjoy taking pictures the seagulls..

magui (745) 2013-07-07 11:36
Interesting picture of the birs on the pier, maybe waiting one boat...
Nice composition and excellent colors.
jmdias (63504) 2013-07-11 17:44
nice view of these birds. I liked the mood of the image and the peaceful moment you registered.
NorthernLight (2383) 2013-10-05 2:28
a nice picture to make you smile. It looks as if the gulls are waiting for the next ship.
Seen with a fine humor and well captured!
Greetings from the North

This is a picture of Israel that I seldom get to see. Water, birds and beautiful greenery.
unclehotshot (3999) 2015-08-02 12:14
The Yarkon River morning atmosphere well captured. A pleasant light and tranquility hangs over the location. It's a good composition with the wooden pier populated with various birds.
Simple joys of every-day life. Good job, Ike.
Cheers and good Monday.
