Altai landscape. You can imagine absolute silence, with quiet sounds of water murmur or singing of birds, the purest air…

I have made some changes in a saturation (you can see initial variant in Ws), though the sky remained contrast unfortunately.

Thank you at all for stopping by and commenting.

Hi Natalia:

This is a beautiful picture and place.TFS

Jafar M.

Hello Natalia,
A very peaceful place, indeed.
Personally, I would have taken this picture from a slightly different point of view. If you had stood a bit more to the right, you could have shown us the "vanishing point" of the lake, which is now invisible because of the two trees. However, these trees are interesting, as they give structure to the foreground of your photo.
TFS & kind regards,

Hello Natalia!
Very nice landscape!

Hi Natalia,
Beautiful and tranquil scene. As someon ealready pointed out, the trees are better if they were to a side. That way thay are not blocking the scene. The picture could be a bit sharper too.

beauiful place.. so green but i bet in the winter it is so cold.. lovely shot, Natalia..

tfs and greeting, terry

Hi Natalia.

HI Natalia, this is surely a lovely place. I think it would be much better if you could take it by placing the tree to aside, not in central and therefore will have a great landscape texture. The reflection here is superb. Thx for sharing, ari
