Une petite image captée à un biotope près de Saxon le jour se lève en fond les grenouilles également avec en fond les montagnes de la plaine du Rhône.
Belle journée

Bonjour Nicolas,

Oh, this could be a painting!
You were up early to capture this scene which is absolutely beautiful.
The tall grasses surround the water bringing a gentleness to the scene, whilst the tree reflection links to the original, silhouetted against the amber of the rising sun.
The hints of mist are the icing on the cake ... BEAUTIFUL!

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hello Nicolas,
What a pretty sunrise. A very attractive composition with delightful lights and colours. A joy to behold.

Salut Nicolas,encore une magie depuis ta camera! Une peinture magnifique,quelles lumieres,quelles coulerus et quelle atmopshere,super!! Bon WE et merci,Luciano

I guess you were looking for frogs in the pond, Nicolas, but those can hide very effectively, but you cvcould hear their croak. Wonderful early morning golden glow and slight mist that gave special ambiance on the photo.

Bonjour, cher Nicolas,
J'ai l'impression d'entendre le chant des coassements des grenouilles qui s'amusent à sauter à travers la pièce d'eau, et de voir par moments des ronds circulaires d'un plongeon d'une grenouille.
L'image est très belle.

Bonjour Nicolas. N'as-tu pas essayé de transmettre la chanson des grenouilles ainsi que les splendides couleurs du soleil levant? Difficile à imaginer en voyant cette image qu'il y a un autre monde habité par des humains remplis de haine et de vengeance. Le paradis est ici et maintenant si nous pouvons seulement apprendre à aimer notre monde. Meilleurs vœux. Klaudio.

Hi Nicolas
i get the feeling this will be a strong photo for you.
and why not? the soft light, the long tall grass, the reflections, the misty air, the orange skyline, its got alot going for it. lovely work. cheers

Hello Nicolas,
This is a remarkable composition. The colours are fantastic and I love the tree reflected in that calm pond surrounded by reeds. This could very possibly have been a 19th century romantic painting. A museum would have been proud of it.
Kind regards,

bonjour Nicolas

Back to gentle nature with another beauty. Very soft, very poetic and well timed. Strange, though, how the reflection of the tree is green, yet the tree itself is a black silhouette.

Bonne WE

You sure found a perfect spot here - the soft, tall grass is a lovely frame for the water. Very nice !

Bonjour Nicolas,
What a beautiful photo with such a great mood. The mix of slight fog around the mountains and the warm colours in the sky is wonderful and the small lake in the foreground reflects the sky and tree most clearly.

Bonjour Nicolas
In this splendid composition is the rich variety of colours the first thing that stroke my attention. The second is the composition itself with the dark-light contrast of the tree and the reflection and the border of reed and its reflection.
Splendid work.
Have a good weekend, Groet Rob

Hello Nicolas,
Marvelous view in sunset time. Beautiful delicate grasses and nice reflections in the pond.

Kind regrads Malgo

Hi Nicolas
Enchanting peaceful early morning scene turning a mundane sky into a drama! i love the fact that you used the stunning sky of different tones to draw the eyes into the image. I like the angles and levels to this view, the trees, the mist and reflections stand out pretty well but also lovely how the reeds add interest as strong base-line. It's beautiful tranquil image smartly constructed, Congrats.
Best wishes

Hello Nicolas,

I like the soft, pastel color and the superb reflection, enhanced by the sunset hues. Good symmetry of the reflected tree also with excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Salut Nicolas, très bonne image de cette composition charmante et intéressante avec une lumière merveilleuse, très bien capturé dans cette belle image avec une bonne netteté, la lumière, la couleur et la qualité. Excellent travail intéressant et parfaitement réalisé, mes félicitations à mon ami. Merci de partager ce beau travail.

Bonne nuit et bonne semaine.
Meilleurs voeux du sud de l'Espagne.

Bonjour Nicolas,
this is so beautiful!
I like how you have used the grass in the frame. The tree in the right and its reflection would be enough to impress me already. On top of that you have as well the beautiful sky and the silhouettes of mountains on the horizon.
Spectacular scene,

Olá, Nicolas!
Gostei muito, o céu é lindo e o reflexo da árvore na água deixa a foto completa! Também achei muito interessante essa vegetação em torno do lago! Bom trabalho!

Hello Nicolas,
This is a very fine photo with the silhouettes of the trees against the burning sky. It is interesting that the reflection of the tree is in color while the real tree is in silhouette from.
