Sunset at Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe,Lake Kariba is one of the largest artificial lakes in the world, created by a dam in 1960, this is the reason for all those submerge trees. I took this shot handheld from a boat with a 80/200mm plus 2x extender.

fantastic environment, the sun is excellent and those trees(?) are so forelorn in the flooded environment.

I like the sun offset to the right, but think it may be better offset a little more to the right.

maybe a few more notes to clarify what it is you are showing here....
excelletn moody shot and a great sun globe in the sky, nicely exposed.

Hi Louis,
Great composition, and the position of the sun is dot on the golden mean, this pristine environment has been well captured by you.

Hello Luis,
A very moody capture!
Simple but most pleasing composition, muted colours to match the atmosphere...
Well framed and with great details, relaxing and pleasant to look at!
