This is the lake Durusu in Thrace. About 75 km's west of İstanbul. This lake (also called Terkos lake) was and is an important water reservoir for İstanbul. Even from 9th century onwards during Byzantine period, water was been transferred via aquaducts to İstanbul.

beautiful scene.I like the way you captured it,but also this unique,kind of tranquil,soltitude mood you were able to convey here.The composition and vertical format you chose are also a masterpiece.And in the end-colors,which I have to mention-delightful,bright and vivid and so well contrasting with each other.

Beautifully composed shot with a great perspective, but what stands out most for me, is the red and white canoe that adds a bright touch of colour to this peaceful natural landscape. For tilt maniacs, there's a little bit of a tilt of the horizon that should be easy enough to fix by rotating a few degrees.
Have a nice Sunday.

A nice shot. The red-white canoa is perfectly placed and made the composition very attractive. Well done.

This is a very nice image with a simple element in the nature. I ilke the way your image is framed and the distance on the water gives deepness. The light gives good colors and the sharpness is very good.

The red canoe is very eye-catching and it is well positioned in the picture. A simple, but still a very well composed picture. Maybe I should have adjusted the slight tilt.

schön, wie das rote Boot mit der Landschaft und dem Himmel kontrastiert. Ein hervorragend komponiertes Bild von diesem typischen Boot in seinem natürlichen Element. Das Licht ist ebenfalls sehr stimmungsvoll. Kompliment!

The red and white canoe adds the necessary focal point in this wild landscape Mesut. The red and white contrasts well with the natural colours. Have a good Sunday Rosemary

A luminous and clear picture
Well composed with a beautiful sky, the long grass and the red canoe
Bravo, have a nice sunday

An picture with nice layers in it and this
creates a nice depth, the vertical position
and the boat on the forgrpound emphasize
that extra. Composition and light
management are also very good.
Little note: the horizon is skewed.

amazing composition! The red and white boat is a killer. Love the reed leaning in the wind and the bright colors. Just a little tilt to the left and the sky betrays a scanned image. Lovely work!

The distance between the canoe and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the canoe and of the beach. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.

You have found a really aesthetic and beautiful combination of colors and compositional details. The white-and-red canoe looks great against the highly picturesque green-and-blue background. Excellent presentation of such an attractive natural area as this scenic lake!
jjcordier (63074) 2013-02-03 22:36
Jolie composition avec cette touche de couleur rouge apportée par le canoé et un très joli ciel.
bona (10224) 2013-02-04 11:12
nice point of view with this red canoe glowing over this green/blue photo. But where is the oar? Maybe the ownwer carry it to nobody take his canoe :)
elenimavrandoni (5807) 2013-02-06 12:03
Red contrast against nature's soft tones and touches!
Very attractive scenery of a very panoramic lake!!!

Tout me plaît dans cette image, le canoë rouge et blanc bien placé, le vent dans les herbes hautes, un ciel superbe, la profondeur, excellente présentation, très beau travail
