Do our best

The river is busy with water bicycle-boats (whatever you call them) nowadays. The water theme park/camp/caravan park is filled with locals as well as visitors from nearby counties, even some foreign tourists coming for a dip or holiday. Our town isn't a tourist destination but we do try our best to line up programmes for the summer to liven up things and eventually to attract more visitors.

Nice shot. I think they're called pedalos.

Jazzy said...

Wow, the colours are great, the water is magic.
I like the boat, it looks like a dolphin =)

Sally said...

That's beautiful kris. One thing I found when I visited Hungary was that Hungarian people share a real love of water and swimming with Australians - loved the pools and baths in Budapest.

Dawn said...

Another stunning shot. Like Kala and Mark you make me wish for summer with your lovely holiday shots!

grainofsand said...

The greens and the girl in blue and ample amount of sunshine. You get the best shots !

What a beautiful photo!

I noticed a technical detail of the lighting that is very interesting (at least to me). The sunlight appears to be nearly directly overhead. So, the reflected light from the boat etc. acts as a fill for each person's face. On my computer screen, the fill on the man's face is great, the fill on the boy's face is good and the fill on the girl's face just doesn't quite make it. I blame mother nature!

This does not detract from your photo's beauty or your choice of exposure. I just thought that if some had not noticed, they might find it an interesting example of the effect of reflected light.

Feel free to delete this comment if you think it inappropriate! Best wishes - Brian.
