[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this Photograph in Graskop; Mpumalanga; South Africa. We stayed 3 days here in Graskop and almost every afternoon it was our resting place.

It was the moment of Sunset, but gloomy weather due to little bit rain. Mother Nature looks engrossed in slumber kingdom and her vein is getting dry. But it was a beautiful moment to cherish the brilliant light and dark clouds.

Hello Srikumar,
I have the feeling you were smiling ear to ear when you brought this shot up on your camera screen....AWESOME IMAGE by all standards!! The lighting is incredible, allowing the terrain and stream to be well illuminated yet giving them a magical appearance. The dark clouds are the icing on the cake, so beautiful. The composition is perfect as your eye moves from left to right following the stream from foreground to horizon. I would be thrilled to capture such an eye catching scene.

Hi Srikumar,
Fascinating gloomy weather of sunset ..
The light is nice and you captured an impressive sky.
Best wishes,

Hi,Srikumar. The ominous clouds and warm colors embellish this beautiful landscape you have captured. Color saturation is natural, texture of the rocks and the vegetation adds to the visual impact. Congratulations. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Srikumar

Hi Sri,
A fantastic landscape with awesome composition, gorgeous lights and colors, plus dramatic sky. Needless to analyse, this is an excellent photograph, I can only congratulate for the great pic and admire you. However, I don't fully agree with the note, at least if you mean the drought globally - in Ireland the weather seems more and more rainy. The territory where I live gets 1200 millimetres of rain per year, as said - for me it seems this number should be multiplied with at least 2. In spite of the global warming, our summer in 2015 was the coldest in the last 100 years, as local guys said, it was cooler than the legendary bad 2009 one. So, it seems there's still a chance. :-)
Thanks for sharing this majestic masterpiece, kind regards, László
