[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A hudge Platanus tree stooping over the river Struma in the Kresna gorge near the border between Bulgaria and Grece. Struma or in Greek - Strimon (Στρυμών) has the same meaning as "stream". It takes its source from the Vitosha Mountain in Bulgaria, runs first westward, then southward, enters Greek territory at the Kula village and flows into the Aegean Sea, near Kavála in the Serres prefecture. The river's length is 415 km (of which 290 km in Bulgaria, making it the country's fifth longest).

Platanuses are known as planes in the Old World, and as sycamores in North America.

Hi Anton
Nice capture with potential!
Well composed, good lighting and natural colours... Note is good too!
Maybe a slight adjustment of levels will result in a bit more punch... Have a look at my quick workshop!

Hi Anton,
Nice scenery and informative note. Sharp and clear image. Well done and TFS.

Hi Anton, It is good to learn of far away countries this way. Good perspective showing the strongly flowing river with vegetation around. Excellent note. Murray.

The strong river here and all that vegetation, it somewhat seems like the jungle in Amazonia.
