Here the Volga begins

Once I visited the place where the greatest Russian river the Volga began. I was suprised how tiny it was. I could cross it in one big step. Standing by it I could hardly believe than it would turn into a mighty river.

Re: Here the Volga begins

We are all agreed - the water and reflections are super. I also like the cut edge to the water on the RHS and the darks beyond the furthest boulders.

Fantastic work - and there will be a huge river out of it!

Re: Here the Volga begins

So lovely! We can see clearly the stones half in/half out of the water. The shadows of the grass on the stones and the water are really well done. Can not believe myself that this is the start of a great river.

Re: Here the Volga begins

This is lovely. I particularly enjoy your choices of greens, the sunlight, the shadows, the water and finally, the stones. Excellent!
