This photo was taken after a day of birding in the Gediz Delta at 8:50pm, a while after the sunset.

I was attacked by hundreds of hungry mosquitos, which gave me 10 bites in 67 seconds... I think this was a get ready practice for the mosquitos of the Amazon and the rainforest :o))

Hope to catch up with you when I'm back

Thanks for looking

Merhaba Selen Hanım,
Harika bir manzara.Tam saatinde çekmişsiniz.Sudaki yansıma çok güzel.Bence ufuk çizgisinin ortada olması yansımanın etkisini arttırmış.Size iyi yolculuklar ve verimli bir tatil diliyorum:)
Selamlar,ellerinize sağlık!

Hi Selen,
great use of that wonderful lens :o) Very nice composition and although i thought it was a little bit dark at first, i actually really like the mood here...very well done.
Good luck in Peru, take care!

Hola Selen, que tengas buen viaje y todo te salga bien, a la vuelta espero poder volver a disfrutar de tus trabajos, en esta fotografia la escasez de luz le ha dado un efecto de viñeteo muy agradable, la luz captada es muy buena así como el color. Un saludo

Dear Selene,
That very reflection is something that gets you to say "Open sesame"...this is an ethereal shot Selene so much so for the mosquito bites that you suffered. I cant imagine how you would have felt standing there capturing this superb scene in your frame.Absolutely breathtaking, i love the diagonal contours you have got in here, the far away lights , the smattering of blue as if colour burst on water and finally those little rocks in water that have a 3D appearance. Initially i thought them to be rolling off the slope and then i realised they were there in the water. Truly magnificent and into my favourites.
Thanks for sharing this and enjoy your Peruvian holiday...

10 bites in 67 seconds..That must be a record Selen :)
Wonderful comp & impact, the late light color & sky across the water is fabulous..And as you say, your bout with the insects should prepare you well for where you're headed. Be safe..
And don't forget the insect repellent ;-}

Hello Selen,
An impressive capture of the horizon at the end of the day, the mirror-like calmness of the water producing a reflection that makes an attractive pattern in the image in fantastic lighting.
A beautiful image and TFS!
I look forward to your shots from Amazonia!
Best wishes, Ivan

Hi Selen,
Wow, another awesome trip. I do envy you that you have the opportunity to make these trips. I am glad that you are sharing your experience through TN though.
Its a wonderful photo, with great perspective. Its a bit surprising to see that such a long exposure didn't give you much movement in either clouds or grasses

Merhaba Selen,
many thanks for the effort to achieve this first class image from the attack of mosquitos! much appreciated for that!
supurb composition with such depth, awesome colour and sharpness!
my special compliment for a fine landscape!

bu harika manzara ve çekim için ne söylenebilir ki Selen hanım. muazzam güzel. harikulade. kutlarım. elinize sağlık, selamlar.
