"The land is totally dry,
With water only from taps to cry......"

A part of Kruger National Park.During the time of driving we faced dust storm in this place,although just for few seconds.It was a cloudy day and we expected rain.Just captured a few pictures of this Landscape and returned.

Your camera and your knowledge of photography made this landscape look like PARADISE, indeed!!!

Hello Srikumar,
What a pity that they walked the wrong way. The landscape is beautiful with these Impalas. Excellent sharpness and a fine choice of composition.

Bonsoir Srikumar,
Quelle étrange lumière restituant un paysage pour le moins original ; c'est bien vu et surtout bien restitué.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Srikumar,
I'm sure you had a wonderful time at Kruger photographing animals that I just dream about seeing. Hopefully I will eventually get to visit this place and see it for myself.
The antelope do not seem to be bothered by your presence at all as they head into the thick brush. They have such beautiful coats with colors that blend in perfectly with the reddish colored soil. Well done!!

Hello Srikumar!
A pleasant composition with good details and fine natural colors. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

interesting image. good pov. nicely framed tfs.

Hello Srykumar,
I missed some of your photos..... Especially those from South Africa. I was very busy in the last months. As I see you post a splendid photo with perfect focus and lovely colors. Excellent composition about Africa.....
Thanks for sharing!

Ciao Srikumar, an other fantastic wild scene from Africa, wonderful natural colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Srikumar

Beautiful photo with atmosphere effect, as Howard wrote,
if they facing or coming towards the viewer, the photo
would be better, but in nature with wild animals
we can not decide of these things sometimes, TFS
