[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this photograph at Lowveld, Mapumalanga Province, during my staying in Graskop. The area was dry and due to winter, color looked brown.

South Africa's Lowveld situated in Mpumalanga province and stretches far. It is near to Blyde River Canyon area. Here beautiful formation of landscape and flora and fauna attract me a lot.
The Lowveld is the name given to two areas lie at an elevation of between 500 to 2000 feet (150 and 600 metres) above sea level. One area is in the Mpumalanga and Kwa-Zulu Natal and parts of Swaziland and the other is in the southeastern Zimbabwe. Both are underlain largely by the soft sediments and basaltic lavas of the Karoo system and by loose gravels.

Hi Sri,in effect the colors seems a bit stranges,maybe the pic is a bit oversaturated? But the scenery is fantastic,great view of this wild place,i like it! Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Hello Srikumar,
I am under correction but this looks like you are at the top of the Great Escarpment with the Lowveld below. Not sure though but seeing you mention the basaltic lavas of the Karoo Supergroup I suspect it is the Great Escarpment. The colour saturation and exposure control are very good and it is a real pleasure to view.
Well done.

Hello Srikumar,
It is really a splendid landscape. Amazing sharpness and excellent clarity. Outstanding colors. The light and details are great. It is a pleasure viewing this wonderful landscape. It reminds me of a very old movie called TARZAN....The colors of the stones are superb.
Thanks for sharing!
