Berezina in the fall

photograph by Sergei Plytkevich

Very difficult. First decided on the more interesting parts of the river using maps, then agreed with a pilot to take me there. Waited for 3 weeks for the weather and finally spent 4 hours yesterday flying over Berezina, Viliya, Naroch' and Blue Lakes. Sadly, photographing from the plane turned out to be much more difficult than from a helicopter or a tower. (unauthorized translation by me - ed)

Indeed. A very nice shot of one of Belarus' largest, and prettiest, rivers. The whole region is waiting to be discovered by tourists (that do not care about the half-life of uranium from the Chernobyl explosion)
