Beautiful shot but was it taken in the winter as that is what the contest is?
heldersantana December 21, 2015
In brazilian northeaster there is no snow. The winter is the season where it rains and the plants grow.

WINNER OF THE
"WORLD WETLANDS DAY - YOUTH PHOTO CONTEST", organized by the RAMSAR Convention.

Capibaribe River, Limoeiro - PE, Brazil.

"I live in the small town of Passira, and in the late afternoon I was driving back from the nearby town (Limoeiro). As almost always carry my camera gear in hand, was using alternative roads, looking for images that called me the attention. Probably was not safe to use a camera there (or anywhere else in a similar situation), but I was optimistic, as always. Already near the exit of the city, crossing the smallest of the three bridges that cross the urban area, I came across this scene. The light was naturally flawless, with a beauty rarely seen. The atmosphere was blue, contrasting with the gently newborn green of the first rains of the season. Right next to the bridge were some boys and two horses, ready to enter the river. I stopped the car, grabbed my camera (Nikon D7000), and put it over the lens that I thought appropriate at the time, my dear Nikkor 105mm f/2.5 AI-S, of manual focus. The boys entered the water and I was approaching me slowly, as I could without having to enter the water. I spent a few minutes looking for a good angle and trying to anticipate the movements of individuals. After about 10 minutes, I could already predict certain situations at certain times, and that's exactly how I prepared to make the picture. I was in the best possible place, framing and waiting for the right moment to make the click, until, as happened a few times (in less favorable angles), the horse raised his front paws, raising a bit of water, with the boy on the back . It was the perfect time, as those in which even before photographed already know will be a great picture.
The light played a big role in everything, cutting horse, kid, water flying, giving sky color to the river, shining in net ripples and vegetation. I kept clicking in and out of the scene until the rain began to show signs of presence where I was, and for a matter of seconds unable to frame a radius which unexpectedly left the sky deep in the scene. With time rapidly closing and the sun fading completely, all came out of the water, and I was just there though, with happy life."
