Busy time again... Last Friday I travelled by car some 400 km to Bialowieza National Park (best known for European bison - also called wisent) and was back just the next day...
Tiring trip, however the winter in north-eastern Poland was amazingly beautiful. Unfortunately I didn't have time to take pictures... but anyway I'd like to share with you a picture from that area I took in the spring of 2004.

The river you can see on the picture is called Narewka ans is one of the main waterflows in the Bialowieza Forest.

As you see it's completely natural, bordered with large areas of pitbogs and reeds, being a home to some large mammals (eg. elk, lynx), and many birds (including few species of eagles). For that reason, some 674,5 ha of this area is protected under Natura 2000.

Hi Michal.
What a nice view you have pictured and shard. I like its delicate colour tones and lighting, impressive POV, great DOF and sharpness and amazing reflections into the water. Picture is really done with great love. My compliments and TFS.

Hello Michal,
A peaceful landscape indeed!
I like how that little stream is winding into the landscape, a landscape reminding of a spring soon to come...
Well composed and with an attractiv e sky!

Hi Michal,
What a beautiful landscape-picture. I like the subtle colours, the excellent point of view and just the beauty of this area.
Best regards

Hi Michal,

A very nice landscape scene. The muted colors of winter are still beautiful. This could easily pass for a landscape where I live. It looks great.

Hi Michal

This looks indeed like being a dream place!
You could probably find thousands of subject for photography right here - in the view you present us here!
I like the composition here - with the river leading towards the horizon, the lovely and well saturated colors everywhere and the very nice and sharp details throughout the entire frame.
Nice contrast between the reed and the charming blue of the water and sky, too.
Great work!

Bravo and TFS

Trzeba promowac nasza przyrode. Zdjecie niby zwyczjne ale nie zwyczajne. Ladnie zakomponowane z pieknym niebem i ciekawym efektem lustrzanego odbicia

Hello Michal,
It seems like a great place to observe wild life. This is a very nice scenery with excellent exposure, colors, lightning and DOF. I just wonder why you used this fast shutter speed. The reflection in the water is beautiful! Well seen with interesting notes :) Thanks,

Simple y hermosa composición Michal de un sitio realmente muy agradable... imagino que además de las especies animales que mencionas existe buena pesca allí ;-)
Me gusta principalmente el punto de vista captado y los intensos pero naturales colores además de la suave reflexión.
Mis mejores saludos... Ricardo

Maravillosa vista Michal,
bello reflejos y agradable pov.
bonita compo, saludos TFS

Z opoznieniem, ale w koncu jakos sie udalo znalezc chwile na komentarz ;)
Bardzo ladna, ciepla kompozycja ze swietna kolorostyka i udanym kontrastem (woda, trzciny, niebo).
Fajnie uchwycone zostaly takze odbijajace sie w rzece chmury, wyglad to super a jednoczesnie tak jakby "od niechcenia" przez co bardzo naturalnie.
Jak to mowia, cudze chwalicie... ;)
Pozdrawiam serdecznie

Hi friend great landscape:)
Nice reflex with beautiful sky!
Great perspective! Take care Ana:)

This is a pleasing landscape shot Michal. I assume you were on a bridge of some sort. The depth of field is great and the color seems very natural. I like the composition leading deep into the scene. Nice reflections too.
