Hello friends in TN,

Mud is a liquid or semi-liquid mixture of water and some combination of soil, silt, and clay. Ancient mud deposits harden over geological time to form siltstone or solid, mudrock lutites. When geological deposits of mud are formed in estuaries the resultant layers are termed bay muds. Mud is closely related to slurry and sediment.

Mud is similar to muck, but lacking significant quantities of humus, and often containing higher proportions of sand.

Mud can provide a home for numerous types of animals, including varieties of worms, frogs, snails, clams, and crayfish. Other animals, such as pigs and elephants bathe in mud in order to cool off and protect themselves from the sun. Humans have also used mud as a building material, or a sealant material

Thanks for viewing!

The golden colors, reflections and shadows do it for me here.. Wonderful.


Hello Jusni,

Mud or not, it for sure looks good in sunset!
Attractive simplicity in the composition, the couple of poles are attention catchers, but the beauty is in the cloud formation...
Attractive colour palette, the vista is well exposed with super details!

Hello Jusni,
Excellent details & sharpness, perfect composition and great colours. Fantastic landscape! Well done, Siggi

Hi Jusni!

A sea of gold... a delightful effect! Light and colours can transform mud into gold, what a good idea to show us this. I have made many pictures in mud, but totally different from yours. Here, the lightplay and the colours act an important part. Well exposed and composed.

Kind regards

Well done!

Hello Jusni
Mud is usually connected with something stincky, brown and not nice. But your picture show it from completely different point of view.
You've shown the see of gold I would say.
Beutiful composition and excellent colours.
Thanks for sharing

P.S. just one thing I would choose narrower frame but that's just minor thing.

Salam Jusni,
even this area is muddy, but its shot is superb. wonderful landscape image with splendid colors and reflection. Nicely composed and framed. I like this coloration. Many thanks. best wishes my friend

Hi Jusni!

Wonderful scene, I simply love the golden mud with the bg mountains... TFS!

Best regards,

Hi jusni,
I am glad I scrolled through your gallery. This photo is gorgeous. The warm light from the sky and how it reflected on the wet mud is wonderful. The composition with the sticks placed in the perfect positions is a gem for the eyes.

Your notes are HIGHLY EDUCATIVE, Jusni.
Who would think that ordinary "mud" could be sooooo useful to nature in general!!!
The image is outstandingly GREAT.!!!
Mario with greetings.

Hi Jusni,
I love this picture. Excellent colors and awesome sharpness and details. This is the third time I am writing this today but great use of the rule of thirds. Great overall composition and lovely moment.



Hi Jusni,
It's me again. Wonderful sunset photo of mud, this orange tone creates awesome atmosphere. Very nice composition, background and cloud formations, not to mention perfect sharpness. This monochrome tone works very much for me. Big congrats, MF. Also thanks for the interesting and informative note.
Best wishes, László
