**************** HELLO DEAR TL MEMBERS *****************


After a long voyage of complete one month, rough seas in Atlantic Ocean and after facing a FRONTAL DEPRESSION at the river mouth of DE LA PLATA we finally arrived in the RIVER PARANA with calm situations and conditions. Those were the start of winters in southern hemisphere where we had lovely breeze and very cool weather.
We were heading towards Rosario coming from Port Louis, Mauritius. We were going to load the Vegetable Oil from San Lorenzo, a country side of Rosario. It was of almost two days voyage through the river and we really enjoyed the sceneries and the beautiful sites.
I shot this sunset from the Bridge while I was performing the duties of Assistant Officer of the Watch, under the advice of Pilot and Captain's command.

The Paraná River (Spanish: Río Paraná, Portuguese: Rio Paraná) is a river in south central South America, running through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina for some 2,570 kilometers (1,600 miles). This length increases to 3,998 km (2,484 miles) if the distance is counted from the headwaters of the Paranaiba River in Brazil. It is considered second in size only to the Amazon River among South American rivers. The name Paraná comes from the Tupi language and means "like the sea" (that is, "as big as the sea").

Thank you all for visiting and sharing helpful ideas.

Best Regards,
Ali Raza

Hello Ali :)

Wonderfully beautiful west of the sun!
Pretty colours and light, beauty introduction.
I congratulate realization.

My best wishes.

Hi Ali,

This is beautiful. The colors of the sunset are nicely diffused by the cloud cover, which is interesting in and of itself. The long reflection of the sun along the river is well captured and the masts (?) of the ship give perspective. Well done.

Best regards,

blue in sky and sunset are welcome,

congratulations ALi

Powerful composition. The placement of Mats and the horizon has a nice scale. Colors and reflections skillfully enhanced while the black frame added interest in the final result. Nice work.

Hi Ali,
Interesting photo. I think the parts of the ships mast is interfering with the main subject here. I would have composed this without those or may be added more of the ship in the foreground.
