Another spring time shot. I took those photos two days ago in the Niebieskie Zrodla Nature Reserve near Tomaszow Mazowiecki (Central Poland). I hope you like it. You can see additional photos in my WS here and here. It was quite late (around 6 o clock PM). You can see dark forest during the sunset

Niebieskie Zrodla Nature Reserve (Blue Springs Nature Reserve) is large vaucluse spring famous for its high discharge and clarity since the 19th century. It represents ascending spring connected with fault zone in the SW side of the Pilica Graben in the Upper Jurassic/Lower Cretaceous rocks.

The spring water is characterized by very low mineralization and represents hydrogen carbonate-calcareous water of geogenic nature. In spite of the name, the water is colourless. Its chemical character is stable and quality (as drinking water) is very high. The limnocrenes represent two combined pools. Water exits on bottoms of the pools appear as white, sandy stains with "boiling waters".

Hi Krzysztof.
The charming swan in the bright sunlight against the dark BG is looked fantastically. Amazing reproduction of shapes, colouration and other details and features of the majestic bird. Surrounding are also amazing. Despite the dark key of execution details of the bank are great. My congratulations.

Tak sobie dumam nad tymi fotkami. Ta z labedziem ladna - swietnie udalo ci sie uchwycic fakture upierzenia co nie jest latwe na bialym ptaku oswietlonym sloncem na bardzo ciemnym tle. Kompozycja tez ladna. Chociaz tak naprawde to bardziej podobaja mi sie zdjecia z workshopu, na ktorym widac same zrodla. No ale to wybrzydzanie wynikajace z tego, ze jaki labedz jest kazdy widzi, a Niebieskie Zrodla juz nie kazdy :-)

Dear Chris
I do love the quiet pose of this animal and add it to my theme " animals' Behaviour".

Thanks for sharing,
I feel strong melancholy in this photo, but got the same feeling with all people I met in your country.
The reflections in the water add interest and the natural colours make it a pleasure to view your work.

Greetings from South Africa
