wonderful subdued colors.......it looks a bit grainy at the bottom though (could be my monitor)?

@Chris: Good eye, Chris - it is not your monitor. I am traveling this week and rushed getting this series up. I almost deleted this one but kind of enjoyed the 'Monet' effect. So, here it is - warts and all. We'll be back to standards - tomorrow.

Wonderful sky and I like the composition with the reflections on the water leading into the frame!

willow from Chelsea, United States

Such a lovely scene - really strange to think of that graffiti covered bridge overlooks this raw and natural looking place.

@willow: It gets odder - still, willow - as one observes the vegetation along the stream giving way to miles of almond, walnut, and olive orchards - interspersed with fields yielding hay and tomatoes; even a few grape vineyards patch the landscape.

jpdm from Pignans, France

very nice compo, the pic looks like ripped up in the middle with the river...what was the sensibility for that pic ?

@jpdm: Thank you for the visit. I am always happy to provide EXIF data:

Canon 5D w/ Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L lens: ISO 320 - at 16mm - f/7.1 - 1/200th second - processing in Adobe Lightroom.

do i see a lot of grain here? or is it just my computer? i am not complaining at all -- just trying to reckon with what my eyes are seeing... ;) i love that wispy sky and the long narrow refraction of light off the water! very moody!

@dj.tigersprout: Not your monitor, Jaycee - lots of noise in the image. I offer no explanation other than I was rushed - considered deleting it and made the decision not to. And so it goes...
