Hello my Friends!
Today a continuation of Balkan photos and another picture from my last trip to Greece :>

Really during my visit in Greece I saw many places where fresh water should be present (according to map) but it was not. The climat and humat activity keep many water reservoirs without any water, and believe me - it is not a very nice view...
And this place was one of not too many where the river had waters, and moreover, a few waterfalls were present too :>

This is 1/2 of Twin Waterfall localized in the city of Edessa. This is not the bigest waterfall in this region (the biggest is Karanos Waterfall - some 70 meters), but - as for me, more beautiful :>
It is not so high, only some 25 meters, but it is also not so commercial :>

According to the picture I have to say that this is my fouth photo of waterfall presented in TN gallery (here, here and here you can see earlier three:>). I am really interesting what do you think about this image especially in comparision with my earlier photographs :>

And last but not least I would like to dedicate this picture to our TN friend and landscape photographer - Markus Peissard (Haeven) :>

Thank you in advance for your time and comments! :>

Hello Radomir,
I think you used a good shutter speed. Short enough...
Image is well composed. The content is interesting combined with an excellent note. It's positive that you don't hide the unpleasant climat 'news'.

Ahhhh. Mr Heaven Himself yes...How appropriate. A grand dedication and you take his macro'ish or well framed curves and put it into a larger landscape of the waterfall.I can see a bit of Markus technique here. Wonderful Radomer!

Hi Radek, a marvelous landscape shot of Edessa's Twin Waterfal. A realaxing appearance my friend! Great as usual. Nice dedication to our freind Markus too.
Many thanks for sharing this beauty.

Czesc Radek!

Kolejne piekne miejsce nam dzisiaj pokazujesz. Swietna kompozycja, ladne otoczenie wodospadu, az prawie czuc zapach spadajacej wody. Swoja droga, jestem ciekaw, jak by wyszlo to zdjecie z jakims dlugim czasem ekspozycji.

Hello Radomir,
Beautiful picture of Greek waterfall. In general we imagine them in other countries. Your point of view is excellent and shows a very interesting curve in the water-direction, which makes the shot very pittoresc. I also appreciate your Bulgarian waterfall-shot very much.
It seems that Markus didn't see your dedication, I will tell him, he will be very pleased.
Bonne journée

Hi Radomir!

The highest waterfalls are not necessarily the most beautiful ones. Your picture proves this. Water, especially waterfalls exert influence on us. Your picture shows this attraction very well. Moreover, you have very well managed the lighting. Not always easy with the bright water!

Kind regards

Hi Radomir!

For the moment, I can't be very present on TN. When I went back in the main Gallery and saw this waterfall, I immediately started to write my comment because it's a picture that pleases me very much. Then I read the notes, but probably didn't scroll down enough. I didn't see that you dedicated this picture to me.

I would like to apologize for that and to thank you from my heart for this attention. Indeed, we landscape photographers represent a little minority here on TN and every positive feedback is welcome.

Kind regards

Hello Radomir,
Sunsets can be photographed because they are sunsets, just as waterfalls can be photographed just because they are waterfalls and most of them are not that interesting or beautiful. But this one is both interesting and beautiful. Interesting for me as a naturalist because it presents an interesting habitat and interesting for me as nature photographer because you have succeeded in using just the right camera settings and nmade a great composition.
The lowest part of the waterfal looks man-made but that no negative point.
TFS this interesting and beautiful image,
Regards, Ivan

Hi, Radomir,

Hello Radomir,
How amazing to find a waterfall like this in a city! I like the point of view and the lovely greenery surrounding it. Great sharpness and beautiful colours too. Is there a man-made basin receiving the water below?
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Radek,

Hi Radomir,
a very well framed shot my friend, it feels as though this water fall might flow out of my screen! A good use of the fast shutter speed to freeze the waters flow, and the detail throughout is excellent too - well done!

Dear Radomir
Very intersting scene you captured,
Great composition,exposure and POV.Welldone my friend.

Good Luck

Hi Radomir,
I'm glad you pointed out this photo, because I did miss it completely. You captured the force of the water perfectly. I like the flow of the water in this fall it seems to have carved out a very spectacular route.
Your dedication to our friend Markus is worth a lot.
