Photographer's Note

The photo was taken in the afternoon. I was walking by the riverside, enjoying calm place and those ice patches floating on a water.

There's nothing particularly interesting in this place. Except nature of course. But I don't know any bloody history concerning this area.

It's just great place to walk, bike, hike, watch some rests of ancien wildlife of the region.

But no, stop:) I've got an idea. I'll explain scientifically the charm of sunshines.

The Earth’s atmosphere contains both air molecules and tiny suspended particles (tinier than a wavelength of light), both of which scatter light (send it off in different directions). This scattering effect affects light of shorter wavelengths more than longer wavelengths, which is why the sky is generally blue in colour.

During the sunshine though, light must travel through thicker layer of atmosphere to reach you owing to the oblique angle. So most of blue light is scattered while red light isn't scattered so fast. Therefore the light you see and admire is reddish in color.
