A morning walk through the summer aromas of wild flowers and herbs in Russian countryside. A hardly visible track leads the way through hills to the small village of Sinyavskoye. It is about 5km from Tanais railway station and there are several paths to choose. A dirt road goes along the wheat fields on the right. That`s the way the old bus will run getting summer residents to their dachas. Another trail on the left is showing the way via the meadow and along the rail tracks and the river. The quickest way, but with meadows getting flooded periodically it might be tricky to get through without getting wet. The scenic walk and my favourite one is along the hill slope. If you are lucky to be in the right time you can find ripe mulberries, sloes, and raspberries together with numerous birds, poisonous vipers and other local residents.
The panorama is a stich of 10 vertical images (2 rows of 5 shots) taken handheld with short breaks to keep the mozzies away. Original images were treated against the lens distortion and softness, with then some extra work on contrast, tonal correction, colour balancing and with few dodge-burn touch ups.
