Photographer's Statement:

During the summer the river is full of happy joyful people. But when it is winter there is no one in the river, they are just watching the water slowly go through the beautiful landscape of the snow-touched trees. The visual landscape of the leaves moving in the light breeze and the sound of the flowing water helps people’s mental state by calming them down.
