It was an early morning and boat driver was leaving for next customers where they were waiting for him at New Amsterdam. Suriname River’s great muddy color, shining morning sun, really different sky here in Suriname gave this gold color. I photographed the scene at Leonsberg's small catwalk.
Leonsberg : Located at northern part of Paramaribo. Closer to the Atlantic Ocean and at the beginning of beautiful Suriname River’s big mouth.
Leonsberg is a Dutch name. “Berg” means “hill” in English. It means the part of this area is “Leon’s Hill” May be there was a lot of “Dutch Leon” who were protecting the Paramaribo (capital city of Suriname) during colonization period ;)
You may have a look about the history of New Amsterdam on my another photograph here :New York was New Amsterdam

A very pleasing sunrise photo in Leonsberg. Although the boat may be the focal point, I admire this photo more for its warm glow and colors. Best wishes.

Amazing golden light! The composition is pleaseant, maybe a little crop on the top would balance it even more.

Magnifique photo dans un ton de sépia. Bonne composition et bon commentaire.
J'aime bien la silhouette du bateau.
Personnellement j'enlèverais un peu de ciel pour décentrer la ligne d'horizon.
Félicitations!... et merci de partager,

This is one of the great shot representing "message of peace" I have seen on this site. Good POV and good idea to cover some part of illuminated water at right side.
Thanks for sharing.

Güneş ışınlarının su üzerinde oluşturduğu yansımalar, renkler, parıltılar ne kadar güzel... Ortadaki sülüetlerin siyahlığı ve göğün o muhteşem rengi...
Bu arada üstadım Surinam Hollanda sömürgesiydi değil mi? Hollanda da oynayan Surinamlılar vardı sanıyorum. Bu arada sen bize biraz iyi futbolcu bul:)... Transfer mevsimi bitmeden.

Nice sunrise, the tonality of colors is great, the use of sillhouettes is well use. Good composition.

Müthis bir gündogumu ve enfes altuni renkler... Teknenin ve agaclarin silüeti de cok güzel... Sudaki yansimalar ve kipirtilar da kompozisyona güc katmis... Insana huzur veren bir fotograf...

Idyllic photo, good choice with the sun place just in the right corner of the composition. The boats add to overall calm.

Magnificent capture with these golden tones that give him very good ambience. The presence of the ship going towards the sun is very beautiful.

Hello Ertugrul. The tone of color here is amazing with the boat well framed in the scene. I like the reflection like molten gold in this river with pristine view. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. Jusni
