HAPPY EASTER DAY.....remember what Easter really means because its not all about the Easter bunny eggs,candy all that but its about Jesus when he rose from the dead and his Crucifixion.

A Call From Nature
By Alvin Jenner

I lied down under a tree
I heard a silent whispering
It was a call from nature
Not for me and you
But for the whole world

It was saying something
To which I listened with attention
"I help all life on earth
Life too used to help my existence,
But is the same now?"

Thus spoke my mother nature
But with great suffer in her mind.

>Cloudy day...after lunch We(me and my wife)went towards Crocodile bridge,but the way mother nature changed her mood quickly,we followed H4-2.To reach quickly to Lower Sabie we changed our track and followed S82.And here we noticed beautiful landscape....almost dark sky and panoramic verdant Savannah.Not only flora and fauna,but also for such Landscape I will go again Kruger National Park.We stopped little bit and felt cool breeze and delicious perfume of unknown flower.It seems Mother Nature showed us her exsistance!Just we TWO and MOTHER NATURE!Click...click...click!Just 3 pictures and started our journey again towards Lower Sabie.Already rain has started....

Hello Srikumar,
Fascinating landscape with this black sky and beautiful light on the rocks. Splendid earth colours in an excellent composition.
Happy Easter to you and your family,

And, a HAPPY EASTER to you and all your loved ones too.
So how did this happen? The "Rock" is lit most BEAUTIFULLY and yet the background foretells RAIN AND THUNDER SHOWERS ... ???
LOVELY, indeed.
Best regards from Mario in Canada.

Hello Sri,
An excellent idea to show this most beautiful shot taken in Kruger. The light was so special, the red stone in front striking and the dark sky so interesting as contrast. A fine thought from you for Easter, it's the ideal shot for this occasion.
Thanks so much

Hello Srykumar,
Very nice image. Fantastic capture with outstanding contrast against the dark sky. The composition, the clarity and exposure are very good. You should try to take some panorama pictures with this amazing landscapes.....

Bonsoir Srikumar,
Etonnant et splendide paysage sublimé par une magnifique lumičre.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Silvio

You have chosen a great POV of the rocks to
the infinity background and sky, and the
dark and light shadow effect with the scenery
giving an atmosphere effect to the photo, TFS


Hi Sri,
Again something noteworthy from you what I missed at the time when you posted... Dramatic scene, composition's excellent with 2/3 ground and 1/3 sky, exposure / usage of lights is absolutely perfect and the pic has a very special atmosphere. The rainclouds are even dreadful, and are making fantastic contrast with with the rather bright rocks in the foreground. I love your white balance also. One of your best photos without doubt. Hats off of you, Sire.
Best regards, László
