Hello my Frieds!
The beginning of new academic year was very busy for me (much more than I expected...), and unfortunatelly next 2-3 weeks probably will be very similar, so please forgive me lack of comments and critiques to your pictures... :>

Anyway, today I (finaly!) found a few minutes to add a new photo from my last holliday trip to Scandinavia. I hope you will like it :>

The picture shows bank of Lake Stora Tresticklan in Tresticklan National Park (W Sweden).

Tresticklan National Park i one of 28 Swedish national parks. It is located in Dals-Ed Municipality in north-western Dalsland, along the Norwegian border.

And here are some basic additional details about this area:

Established: in 1996

Area: 2897 ha

Lakes: the main and the biggest is Stora Tresticklan, but in total more than 50 are present in the area of park. Moreover, many smaller water reservoirs can be found in the park, especially bogs.

Name: "trestickel" means "trident", possibly a reference to the shape of Lake Stora Tresticklan.

Aim of protection: presence of one of the few remaining areas of pristine forest in southern Scandinavia. The park is also a place where at leats a few very rare and endangered bird species occur, including Western Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus), Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix) and Hazel Grouse (Bonasa bonasia).

Hi Radomir

Firstly, I hope all your hard work during the "academic year" will come to good fruition.
Best of luck.

I like this wonderfully tranquil scenery you have shown us. The composition was well
considered. The waters of the Lake Stora Tresticklan leads the eye into the vista, the
rocks in the foreground presents some reference to size and scale, the trees on either
side of the lake creates some lovely framing to the shot, and the blue sky with the cotton
ball clouds rounds it of in the upper regions. The image contains excellent detail throughout
the range of the landscape and the colours are very natural.

Good work and TFS.

Hy Radomir
You manage to capture very well this nordin landscape, with clear waters and high vertical tress. I like also the reflections of the clouds in the water.
Kind regards, Oana

Merhaba Radomir,
This is not a cicindelid for sure, but your "naturescape" is soo beautiful, taken from a carefully chosen vantage point in wide-angle, so in addition to the great DOF the inclusion of the massive rock in the FG make this a wonderful image indeed! Thanks for sharing it MF.

Hello Radomir,
A fine capture of a place that I have never visited, though the scene is typically Swedish! Taken from a nice POV to show this narrow lake flanked by conifers and rocks with excellent colours and sharpness and set in a pleasing composition.
You would be lucky to see any of the bird species you mentioned!
Thanks and best wishes,

Hello Radomir,
Great to see a post from you again and one from a place in Sweden that I don't know at all! Dalsland is surely a lovely landscape but it seems really tucked away beyond the big lake of Vänern! ;-) Your capture is very beautiful and really signifies the peaceful atmosphere of this area. Excellent DOF and lovely sharpness and colours! Very beautiful!
Many thanks and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Radomir.
Simply fantastic in all respects picture. Amazing clearness of the colours and transparency of the image. However, first of all is brilliance of the place and selection of the POV. I also like impressive combination of the lights and shadows, ultimate sharpness of all pictured objects. Bravo. Perfect landscape work.

Bonjour Radomir,
Grâce à la formidable profondeur de l'image ce bras d'eau qui s'ouvre devant nous est une véritable invitation au voyage afin de découvrir la région décrite dans ton commentaire.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventure.

Hello Radomir,
this is a beautiful landscape of my country and it's typical Swedish.
It's well composed with fine deep and nice POV. It's also well exposed with beautiful natural colours.
Well done.

Hello Radomir.

Very beautiful photograph of the lake surrounded by the beautiful forest. It is a beautiful composition that leads the mind toward the horizon in the lake. Composition dream! What will we discover?
