Riverside Blooms

Photograph by Scott Rotzoll, National Geographic Your Shot

"The Nakdong Riverside Yuchae Festival in Busan, South Korea, is an annual event that I'd never been to before," says Your Shot contributor Scott Rotzoll. "So when a notice appeared in a local magazine, I made sure to put aside the time to visit it. There really wasn't a lot of preparation for this shot. There were canola flowers blanketing the riverside as far as you could see, dotted with people. My main focus was to use the bridge to frame one side of the photo, with one or two points of interest within."

Rotzoll's picture recently appeared in the Your Shot Daily Dozen.

This has to be one of my favourite images the contrast of the city and the field, the hard edge of the mountains and city life with the soft and relaxed vision of the people in the field. Epic concept, beautiful moment, captured by a true talent.

Unusual,...... flowers dotted with people, (one even with a phone), a yellow perspective on a city and a bridge.     Photo is rather surreal and filled with much visual interest!

A marvelous picture filled with quite a few points of interest. All of them framed so well,Scott. I count the mountains,buildings,that sleek bridge,the flowers and all those people as adding to your shot,making it something special. Thank you.  j.e.s.......
