[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture in Lowveld area at Mpumalanga,South Africa.

I took this picture just after Sunset.I waited long time for such "Golden Hour". I prefer before Sunrise and after Sunset to capture Landscape. Handheld shot. ABOUT MY PICTURE- Shutter Priority Mode; Manual Focus; f/16, ISO-400; Level/Curve adjustment; Selective sharpness.
