What we see here is the same little stream as in my former postings “Autumn” and “Small Stream” but this time only a few meters before the stream exits into Lake Samsjøen, a couple of km from the former location.

Several streams like this ends into the lake, and they are very important for the trout as they provide the spawning opportunity. During September the fish will enter the streams for this important task…

This image was shot during the summer of ‘06, which was extremely dry, and the water level in the stream was unusually low.

Hi Pablo!

Your picture is very pleasant and the composition with the river leading us into it is well seen. It's also good to see part of the lake in order to see where the river finishes. The colors are fantastic, refreshing and reflecting a great joy of life.

Thanks for this!

Kind regards

Hello pablo !
Such a beautiful landscape ! It looks peaceful and quiet, I can almost hear the song of the birds. The blue color of the sky is quite amazing, as well as the splendid greens on the trees. Composition and POV are wonderful, as usual. Very well done !

Hello Pablo,

It's almost the same beautiful picture as the last one. A splendid landscape, wonderfull lighting and fantastic colors. Great saturation, great clarity and superb contrast. I like the little stream at the FG and then the view trough the lake. Gives depth in the photo. Wonderful. That must be a very nice place to be there isn't it? Regards and TFS BOB

Excelente panorama.
Bellos colores que se mezclan dando un toque de vida a la imagen.
Buen trabajo.
Saludos, JL.

Hi Pablo

You did great to post this image from my point of view; it really completes an image of teh entire place in my head :)
I really like ths one, too, presented here with vibrant summer colors and very nice details.
The composition is also terrific and it benefits from several bonuses in my opinion: the small skattered clouds in the sky, the bright stones in the FG contrasting with the trajectories of the water and even the narrow view to that bigger water in the BG.
Well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Pablo,
Perfect compositon and wonderful, well saturated colours. Once again a calm and inviting landscape. It's nice to see the green grass and to read that this fields are from a dry summer! Clearly you live in the north :-)
TFS, José M.

Hi Pablo,c'est toujour un plaisir de regarder des paysage aussi beau,magnifique shot.Merci

You do not take many pictures, but when you do they hold some true value. I frequently come back to your albums and wander around, many times peering again at pictures I have already seen. There is always something I can learn and at different times, it is different lesson. You are a good teacher.

Hi Pablo,
Another one of your exquisite ladscapes. Lovely colours and details and you have captured the ambience so well here. Excellent POV to portray this charming scenery and very nicely composed. Kudos.

This is a nice, richly saturated image Pablo. The greens look very natural. I like peaking through to the lake and sky. Sharpness and details are good.

Great, well thought-out composition with vibrant colours.


Once again, a most pleasing capture of the scenic beauty of your country, Pablo. The three colours, namely, green, blue and brown combine into an immaculate symphony here.
Thanks for sharing and warm regards.

Hello Pablo,
Not much water left in this stream but I expect it filled up by Spetember. Beautiful composition with a glimpse of the lake at the far distance. Lovely colours and excellent DOF. It seems like you can just stand in one spot and turn around to get several lovely shots!!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hi Pablo

You have such beautiful scenery and you certainly know how to capture it well. Lovely composition and glorious colours. It makes me wish for summer (not that we had one this year)



p.s. I'm not posting until I have caught up with everyones photos, time seems to have escaped me lately.

Hi Pablo.
Beautiful piece of landscape. I enjoy the composition you have taken with giving us just a glimpse of the lake in the background as the place this stream is heading. The stream is placed well as not to cut the image in half but let the eye follow it around.
Wonderful colours, sharpness and detail.

hello Pablo,
Excellent composition for this wonderful landscape picture. I like the way the little stream takes about the half of the ground of the picture and becomes just a little point after the curve. Excellent point of view chosen. And it is a peaceful area, to stay and dream. Thanks and best regards
