[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I liked the tranquil melancholy mood here, after the crowds of summer have gone. These pontoons are popular with local fishermen, who bring umbrellas & deck-chairs. A bit too cold for them in December though. Taken at the local Aeryongno dam at sunset.

Hi Chris,
Love the reflection of the sticks on the f/g. Light is sweet and colors appear natural yet subtle in this beautiful scene. Excellent work. Danilo
