Hi Patrick,

This is an absolutely stunning photo. I must compliment you on a shot well taken. I love the different colors of yellow, red and browns. It looks great. I have never been to Kenya, but i would really love to see it too. Thanks for sharing this shot with us on TN. You have captured a beautiful moment in nature. Well done...

Definitely Maasai Mara...I've never been but anyway...
Great atmosphere!
Thanks for sharing, Patrick.

Bonsoir Patrick!

Ton image est très plaisante. L'ambiance qu'elle reflète est proche de ce que l'on nous montre souvent de cette région, mais à la différence près que la tienne a ce petit plus qu'on a de la peine à décrire. Peut-être ce sont les magnfiques couleurs, le piquö de l'image, la compsoition. L'ensemble en tous les cas sort du lot...



bonjour Patrick
Très belle composition pour cette photo avec cette arbre solitaire au milieu, le troupeau tout autour et le splendide coucher de soleil en arrière-plan

Merci pour le partage et bien le bonjour de l'Alsace pour la Lorraine

Hi Patrick,

Beautiful sunset of Maasai Mara. I like the lonely tree positioned at the centre.Sometime is good to break the rule, for me its work here with nice sky line and sun at the right.TFS.

Bonjour Patrick !
Wow, je suis épatée par la beauté de ce paysage ! Non seulement j'adore la manière dont l'image est composée, avec cet unique arbre qui se dressa au-dessus de la savane, mais j'aime bien aussi ce troupeau d'antilopes et la merveilleuse lumière du soir. Félicitations !

Hi Patrick

This is a fabulous shot from you and a stunner in the gallery!
A very good example that breaking the rules sometimes pays off: the positioning of the single tree in the middle of the frame anchors the scene and makes everything else in the photo relate only to it. Very bold and nice idea.
That aside, surely i like the silhouettes of the wildebeests created by that amazing and very vibrant sunset behind them. The atmosphere and mood it brings to the entire scene is fantastic and you managed to capture it with the perfect exposure control. My compliments.

Bravo and thanks for sharing
