[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These mountains were photographed close to the Oanob Oanob Dam, approximately six kilometres from Rehoboth.

I applied a certain kind of 'subtle' watermarking; more info about the former and about the photo, you can find here. In terms of the recent TN copyright issues, this kind of watermarking might be useful to some extent. Therefore I will add a link in the forum as well.

Have a good weekend!

Very smart of you Annick....thanks for the clues. I shall inspect them...and I already know many many people take my images from my website and the many sites I belong to...but I am old...and I don't need adoration, nor money...but you are a young hard working photographer and you deserve every bit of credit which comes your way. You have given TN very much as is clearly shown here....Keep on clicking Annick!

Hi Annick,
I've also been to Namibia some years ago. I love the changes of colors in this beautiful country. i haven't been to Rehoboth - when I see your picture I have to get there!!!
Grest colors, sharpness and presentation (as always).
Tfs Oki

Hé Annick,
Kom je ook weer eens buurten? Leuk. En met een mooie foto. Prachtig landschap in een schitterende compositie. Goede natuurlijke kleuren en uitstekende scherpte.
Over het watermerk valt te twisten, denk ik. Het maakt de foto er niet mooier op. 't Is maar wat je er voor over hebt. Ik heb gezien dat enkele van mijn foto's hier en daar ook al gejat zijn. Maar ik kan er niet mee zitten.
Goed weekend,

Hi MF Annick, a great landscape capture from Namibia.
TFS this fine scene and also link.
TFS and have a nice WE!

Hallo Annick,

Hallow Annick,
What a beautiful country of contrasts.Great POV and the lonely soletary cloud is typical of the Namibiam sky.

Hi Annick

It is great to see the vast open spaces, the lovely mountain range and the big blue sky of Namibia. From the evidence in your portfolio it seems like you really had a fabulous time in Namibia as well. It's been a long time since I last visited Namibia, but it is a country that has numerous fantastic jewels to offer the tourist. Someday maybe I'll get the opportunity once again and you can be sure that I will jump for the chance.

The composition worked well with the triangular sky, the intertwining mountains and just a hint of the flat savannah in the foreground. DOF was well managed and the colours are very natural.

Well done and TFS

PS. Thanks so much for your thoughtful response and the link provided on the forum threat icw Aaltjie. It is much appreciated.

Namibia is my favourite country, as far as wildlife and natural beauty is concerned.

And the photo above shows the typical Namibian landscape. TFS!

lovely pictures the blues so natural
