This is an image showing a small stream winding through a mountain landscape in autumn dress! Moss and grass has taken on the seasonal colours, and any day now this place will be covered with ice and snow…

Believe it or not but a few years ago I captured a trout of around half a kilo in this very stream, not here but a bit further down…

hello Pablo,
Picture full of light and beauty. I like this lazy streams winding through the grass. Beautiful reflections of the sky. Amazing to know that they are trouts in there. This landscape looks quite like some bog-areas we have in the Alps.
Thanks for this beautiful pic

Not exactly "A River Runs Through it.", but a small quiet stream instead. Pablo knows how to make "less is more" a universal truth. Very simple. Very nicely done in a delicate way. May you have the wind at your back Pablo.

mouthwatering stream! :)

Hi Pablo
This is a very tranquil and peaceful setting. I like the way the stream is shown diagionally through your image. The rocks give your image nice textures and the fall colours are great. Nice composition and well framed.

Hi Pablo

This is a very original way of viewing the signs of autumn...i love it!
The composition here is definitely my favorite part - with that splendid "S" shaped stream easing through the frame.
The colors are also top-of-the-line, especially that vivid reflection of the sky in the stream and just doubles the attention given to the picture i think! Briallinat POV for that! In fact, the use of hte polarizer here is exceptional, it helping you with that reflection but also saturating the rest of the colors very well, too.
Great sharpness overall and a very nice, well balanced exposure as well.

Bravo, my friend and TFS

Hello Pablo! Beautiful landscape. Amazing colors. Nice sharpness. Very interesting lights. Well done!

My dear friend Pablo,

This is great, Pablo!
Superb composition and colours giving the feel of autumn by a moorland stream and the touch of blue sky reflected in the steam is an excellent compliment to the autumnal tints of the grasses.
Well done and TFS!
best wishes, Ivan

Hi Pablo.
Once again charming place and wonderful its reflection. Terrific details and sharpness as well as the sweet colours. I like diagonal composition of the shot and impressive framing. POV is brilliant. Bravo and TFS.

Magic landscape, great pov and very natural colors.
Well done!

Hi Pablo,
I am glad to see some of a more recent photo from you. It show the warmth of the autumn season in your part of the world. Even if you chose for a photo without a sky, the presents of the sky is certainly there and did add a wonderful touch to the photo.
I am full of envy that you captured such a heavy trout from this river. My record is half of yours.

Hello Pablo,
What a beautiful little stream with reflections of the blue sky and the sun has really turned the ground into gold. A beautiful composition - hard to think that it'll soon be covered by snow and ice.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Pablo,
What a lovely brook. Beautiful colours. TFS.

You are truely the, THE best landscape artist on TN, Pablo.
I do believe you caught a trout in these clean, clean waters.
The colours are MAGNIFICIENTLY captured.

Pablo, for 3/4 weeks I'll be without the computer as of tonight. NOT MY FAULT this time. Not guilty. It needs a "patch" of sorts. And, if it can't be fixed they give me a brand new one for free.
Warm and fond regards, Mario.

Hi Pablo,
Wonderful shot of this small stream running across. Fantastic colours and you have captured the mood beautifully. This place sure does have a smell of fresh air. The reflection of the blue sky on the water makes the shot even more lively. Excellent POV to capture this charming environment and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Pablo,

Thank you for this perfect vision. Autumn colors are magnificent and the use of the stream as diagonal very well seen .

Best regards


Hola Pablo,
Excelente imagen donde has logrado captar, los colores y luces otoñales con gran maestría, saludos

Hi Pablo,

A good POV of the stream going through the mou ntain landscape, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Pablo,
Superb autumn scene!
I like so much the colours used here and its saturation.
The blue hues on the water reflection adds a colour accent to the image.
You've made a very good composition with the flow running slong the diagonal.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Pablo.
The carpet of colours is wonderful. Lovely composition of the stream running through. Interesting how it forms a pool, the runs through a few rocks and into another pool and continues this all the way.
Wonderful image with great sharpness and detail.


Great lighting on wonderful colors. Very beautiful!!!!
Love how the stream diagonals through the shot.

thats quite a punchy shot and makes the vegetation come alive with the diagonal cobalt stream doing a nice cut through the shot
this wasnt taken yesterday..whats the weather like now..

Hello Pablo
What a beautiful display of autumnal colors!
I like a lot the composition with the little stream, even it there's no horizon.
It's almost hard to believe that there was such a big trout there!
Fantastic job!

Hi Pablo

Stunning! Wonderful autumn colours, great light and a perfect composition. I love the strong diagonal of the stream which leads you through the shot



Late autumn - same here. What is astonishing is that snow didn't arrive yet (what comes over night usually disappears in rather mild and unseasonal weather). Love the colors: a little green amidst the yellow/orange enhances the intensity (the impressionists were very well aware of that)

Hi Pablo, elegant autumnal composition with splendid warm colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Your country looks a lot like our country Pablo. OK, I repeat myself :) This is a beautiful scenery, simple but well done, very nice with excellent details and exposure. I like those natural colors and composition. Thanks!

Hello Pablo, very nice scene, great colors and well composed. I like the nice diagonal that the stream is doing in your composition. Well done,


You managed nice rich saturated colors in this shot Pablo. Sharpness and depth of focus are also excellent. I really like the little stream meandering deep into the scene.

Hi Pablo!

I like the simplicity of that picture very much. Isn't it just the image of what nature is? Your picture with the warm autumnal colors invites for a rest and for contemplation.

Kind regards


When I was young, so long ago, catching trout was part of camping. Gone forever now I think.... Nice veiw of a country I can only see online!

Hello Pablo.
Very pretty. Beautifully simple. Lovely warm light and colours. Great sharpness and contrast. The composition's great. The eye actually starts at the back and follows the stream down to the pons and those small stones. I really like it. Well done.
