Orange over South Africa.

Hello friends,
This is a photo from my archive. I took this one in the Kruger Park when we were driving in an open truck. Time for sunset. The sky was all orange.

The final of the soccer worldcup sunday is Spain against the Netherlands. And Johannesburg will be all orange than. Iím not a fanatic supporter, but for one time.........

Tomorrow Iím going for a short vacation to Germany. Hope to see you in ten days or so.
All the best,

Hi Peter,
Splendid orange photo! Have a nice vacation in Germany!

Peter, this sunset image from SA is a beauty.
I too am not much into soccer, so SA will not be on my radar on that account.
Have a good holiday in Germany and all the best.

Hallo Peter
How beautiful and how appropiate is the colour for the World Cup that is near to its end and Netherlands are in the final.
We are once again going to the Kruger in October and I cannot wait to see scenes like these. It is just so wonderful, the colours are overwhelmingly beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

A fine well-composed sunset taken from your archives to suit the event that Oranje will take part in on Sunday.

Have a good trip in Germany!

Hi Peter

Hallo Peter,

strooi jij nog meer even zout in de wonden van onze mede TN ers uit die landen die uitgeschakeld zijn.
Prettige vakantie en ben er dan nog net een paar dagen.
Over de foto mooi en niet alleen omdat het oranje is.
Alleen jammer dat bij dergelijke opname net of er een stuk tak zweeft, daarom neem ik ze nooit door de bomen.

Hello Peter,
Beautiful sunset
Excellent composition and great color and BG.


Hi Peter!
Fantastic sunset! Excellent composition, that big tree is like bursting into flames, beautiful warm colors!!!
I keep my fingers crossed for Holland! They really deserve to win the Cup! After loosing two finals its time to have a World cup in collection!! They didn't succeed with Cruyff in 74 and 78, just like Hungary's golden team in 54, so its time!!!

Hello Peter,
Excellent capture with great colours and lovely details.
Amazing colours and focus.
Very nice composition.

Hi Peter,
A great bush veld sunset with strong silhouette.

Hi Peter!
What a wonderful picture!
You have captured a magic moment of the day...in perfect way. Amazing colours and shades of the sky.
Excellent composition.
Congratulations my friend.
Have a nice W/E.
Ciao! Vanda
Ciao! Va

hello Peter!

Very nice shot! Excellent composition with tree well located in the frame and the Sun subtle hidden behind it.

Amazing african sunset!


hello Peter

i was happy for Spain and sad for Netherland,
when you shot this photo in 2005 you would'nt think
Netherland will be in the final in South Africa in 2010,
quelle coÔncidence ! i love the warm luminosity
and colour tones of this photo, TFS


Dear Peter!

Sunsets often are attractive, and yours is it at best! I like the deep colours of the sky and the effect of the silhouettes of the tree and bushes. It's classical, simple, yet so pleasant and emotional! It's restful to dive into this picture and to free the feelings...

Kind regards


beautiful shot from your archives Peter, a shot fill with warm and soft African sunlight! What a simplicity!
