Hi James. I hope the camera is ok now. Not what i would expect so many trees in africa. As you say a forest for this area. They look as if they have been standing for a long time. With large trunks. All with interesting notes. TFS.

You know I have a weak spot for trees so this one surely made me want to look closer. Especially when it is a kind of tree you do not see often or in this I have never seen for real before.
I like the wide angle view and the depth of this photo. The room that you allowed above the trees is nice and gives an idea of the open feel.

a beautiful African landscape forest photo, fine POV, DOF
and wide angle framing, fine focus sharpness and details,
excellent contrast between the sky's cold and the ground's
warm colour tones, TFS
Beautiful picture James both also - not very optimistic because of dry area and dead-like tree :>
Anyway, I like composition and natural colours, it must be much warmer that here and now in winter Lodz ;>
All the best,

Good that you had more than one camera with you! Hope all is well now. I am smiling at your "forest." It's a beautiful scene and these trees are very pretty. They look familiar - I might have seen one in Australia. I love the composition and the fact that you left so much of the pretty sky.

It's been a long time since i came around and it is great to look at the posts you have made in past months during this brief visit of mine.
The baobab tree "forest" is a new one for me.And with this PoV you have a nice perspective of the tree with its sprawling branches.Pulp drying and falling off to look like chunks of bread...made me sit up and scrutinise the tree wee bit closer on the monitor.That is certainly a tree i would like to see for real.

Hi Bro James,
Nice selection of colours, such a peaceful looking scene. it looks like a very photogenic location to go. The sharpness looks great, the trees provide a good focal point too. Well captured. Great notes as usual.
TFS and have a nice day!

boababs are really fascinating. This one is wonderful as they are so many of them in a very classical arrangement.

Beautiful photo in a very good composition. Good sharpness.
I think you know the famous story of 'How God created the Baobab'.

You have captured this landscape filled with Baobabs beautifully. The wide open space with trees as far as the eye can see adds to the speciality of this already special image. These Baobabs are really extremely beautiful, and very stately and imposing with a distinct character. I personally think they are one of nature's greatest gifts for us to appreciate for withstanding the test of times, season after season, year in and year out. Thanks for sharing this very interesting and most appreciative subject. Best regards.
