[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I had captured this picture in Marloth Park.We stayed there just next to The Crocodile River and cherished the beauty.It was the time of sunset and The Crocodile River looked really beautiful to me.

The Crocodile River is a large river traversing Mpumalanga Province of South Africa.

It originates north of Dullstroom,Mpumalanga,in the Steenkampsberg Mountains.Downstreams of Kwena Dam,the Crocodile River winds through the Schoemanskloof and down the Montrose Falls.It then flows eastwards past Nelspruit and joins the Komati River at Komatipoort.

The Crocodile River in Mpumalanga has a catchment area 10,446 Km.Upstream is popular trout fishing place.It flows through the Nelspruit industrial area,the Lowveld agricultural area and borders the Kruger National Park.The decrease in flow of the river is probably due to water abstractions for irrigated fruit farming.

Hello Srikumar,
What a beautiful looking river as well as the landscape surrounding it. It appears to be running peacefully in this shot, but I don't believe I would care to go for a swim in it:)

Hello Srikumar,
Nice capture of the beauty of this Crocodile River.

Light colours and tones are fantastic. Good details. Very well done Srikumar.


Hallo Srikumar
Thanks for sharing this beautiful scenery from one of my favourite places in the world, the Kruger National Park. We will be spending a week there in April and I cannot wait to see what the park is going to offer us this time.

Wonderful landscape, very peaceful atmosphere with the natural sunlight shining on all the right places.
Best regards

Hi Srikumar,

Beautiful shot, all seem peaceful at the time, love the golden lihgt illuminated the whote area. It must a really treat to be staying there and watching the light changes and the animal doing what they do in their habitat. Excellent landscape shot. I see either a hippo or a very lage crocodile submerged in the river.


Hello Srikumar

Beautiful photo of this river, for the POV and framing, if you could
give less space in the bottom side of the photo and more space
(so more of the river) in the upper side of the photo, I think the
photo would be better with showing from where is coming the river
and to where it is going, TFS
