I had captured this picture in Pretoriuskop;South Africa.

A lake in the Kruger National Park where animals come to drink water.Nice clean water.We stayed there almost half an hour and saw the incredible beauty of KNP.

Hello Srikumar,
Indeed a very beautiful place. This photo is taken in splendid light and colours. Good sharpness and a fine composition.

hallo Sri
very nice picture with good details and lovely colours
thanks gr lou

Hi Sri,
Beautiful landscape, this blue tone is amazing, such as the hill in the background. What a pity you had those grassblades between the lens and the photographed land. Fortunately they aren't so disturbing. Great photo overall.
Best regards, László

Namaste Srikumar

The unique blue-green colours and the light really make up this landscape. The foreground grass blades though distract a little. And how about correcting the little tilt?


Ciao Srikumar, great view of fantastic place, wonderful natural volors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Srikumar,

Beautiful landscape of South Africa, I like very much the texture of the rock in the B/G.
Splendid view of the Kruger National Park, a must see place to visit.
Great contrast of colors and the light are perfect for the composition, TFS.
My best regads , my friend.

Hello Srikumar,
Thanks for visiting my gallery. This is truly a interesting image with a interesting park. The composition, the light and exposure are very good. Have a nice weekend! (The weather is going bad in the last week in my home town Timisoara because of the rain...many villages in the whole country are flooded)
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Srikumar,
I have seen the animals from this well known park featured here on TN many times, it's nice to view some of the landscape also. The terrain in this photo looks fairly flat and covered with quite-a-few trees and some brownish looking grasses. I like the deep dark blue waters which reminds me of Lake Michigan. Thank you giving us a tiny view of this awesome and beautiful sanctuary.

Hi Srikumar.
You have selected piece of Nature for shooting amazingly. Lovely place, attractive POV and very nice presentation shapes of small island (or not ?), vegetations, impressively coloured water. TFS and best wishes.

Hallo Srikumar
The bright colours in this beautiful Pretoriuskop landscape in the Kruger National Park is really stunning. I love the different layers created by the sky, land and then the water. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Looks like PARADISE!!!
