Hoe lekker lyk die bosveld, ek wens ek was nou daar!!!!
Very nice image of a place close to our hearts. The colour and DoF are well handled and the clouds add spice to it.
Interesting note to go with it.

Ha Jan Hendrik...
Absolutely...that's THE tree along a spruitje:-)
And you know what...it's a beautiful tree...een mooie boom!
And the light is perfect! It's Kruger!
Didn't know it was elephant proof as well.
Very good photo.
Thanks a lot.

This is a really nice sharp image Jan with nice depth of focus. I love the feeling imparted by the low angled light. Enjoyed your note.

What a lovely scene - it could be here. And the trees you show are really attractive.
I like the lighting - it has quite a golden glow to the whole scene
Wonderful view from Kruger NP in beautiful light. I wish I could smell it and hear the sounds too. Fine details of the interesting trees and beautiful colours too. I can fully understand your wish to escape here every now and then while at your compouter!
TFS and regards, Ulla
TEN POINTS for this picture and especially note! I'm not so lucky to live in such place like you, but my local Botanic Garden is for me what Kruger is for you. So I read your note like my own words! Great tribute to your beloved place and great dedication to our friend!

Wonderful shot and the warm lighting gives it a fine touch. The typical African jungle ambience is well portrayed here too. Very neat and sharp image with lovely colours and perfect DOF. I like the cloud formation and the marvellous composition. Thanks for sharing.
Hallo Jan Hendrik,
'n Tipiese Kruger Park tonneel, en net om daarna te kyk laat die kliere in my keel saamtrek. Ek glo nie enige een kan nie droom om nie daar te wil wees nie. Veral in die Satara omgewing waar jy hierdie foto geneem het. 'n Wonderlike landskap scenario wat jy opgedra het aan Annick wat gewys het dmv van al sy fotos hoe baie hy die tydjie in die park geniet het. Jou foto jaag die "begeerte" om die wildtuin te besoek nogal sterk aan.

I like the late lights warm color and long shadows cast adding depth.
Nice detail & an effective comp, good balance with the large tree left anchoring the shot.
A wonderful scene from Kruger - it brings back marvelous memories for me. The trees are beautiful and the mud on the trunk is very clear. Superb lighting, colors, and composition. Even the clouds are outstanding.

Hi Jan Hendrick,
I like this beautiful landscape and this particular end of the day (?) lightning. You chose nice composition with good control on exposure. Details are very sharp with very agreeable tones of colors. Thanks,
Thanks for your kind critique on my recent image of a butterfly. I am obliged.
Apparently, you have featured the tree here out of your sheer love for the place.
You note gives appropriate information about this tree and helps in getting to the soul of this image. I like the view lit by the mellow evening sun. It evokes a sense of peace and tranqullity.
Thanks and regards.

lovely dedication to a great phptorapher, i am sure this dedication will please annick, the natural colors look lovely in this landscape shot, the shadows and the light on the grass looks lovely,
tfs & regards
A look at the thumbnail reminded me of the English 18th cent painter, John Constable.
But a closer look replaced that impression with a fine depiction of the African bush with a very informative note!
A beautiful well composed capture in fine evening light. The note was essential not only to inform us about Leadwood trees, but to get some impression of the size when one sees how far up the trunk elephants reach with their backs.
Gone is my belief that the African bush consists mostly of savanna grass and acacias!
I thank you for that and for sharing this fine image,

Hoi Jan Hendrik,
Een prachtige foto van dit imposant gebied. Meestal zien we alleen maar close ups van de dieren maar ik ben blij dat af en toe iemand ook laat zien waar de dieren nu echt leven. Je hebt de foto op een erg mooi tijdstip gemaakt. Het warme licht geeft de bomen een prachtige kleur en maken de shaduws heerlijk zacht. Je composition me de boom aan de linkerkant is perfect en geeft het een mooie diepte.

Seems like this tree s found in abundance in Kruger Park.Looking at the mud mark, I am amazed to realise that the tree is a huge one. Beautiful landscape shot with sun touched trees and meadows.
Thanks for the share,
