[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the look from the Honeymoon suite (which we were given by chance) on the Kunene river. It's the most beautiful, tranquile place we have ever visited. Just imaging this Oasis in the middle of a big desert...
On the other side lies Angola. By small boat we would cross to take a hike in Angola. The Serra Cafema lodge is so well integrated in the surroundings, I think this photo qualifies for TrekNature (if I'm wrong, correct me).

Très belle photo. Les montagnes en arrière plan, l'eau le feuillage et la lumière son bien. Seulement un point négatif. Le cadrage, je croit que cette escalier aurait du être coupé. Merci pour l'envoie et bonne journée.

I find this photo interesting, there is so much to catch your attention, the texture and pattern on the stairs along with the curvy handrail, then there is the river with the way it meanders in curves, then the mountains in the background. All of those elements are interesting in themselves but seem to work well in this photo. I think I would try to brighten it a bit, but then I seem to do that alot.
Excellent shot, thank you for sharing.

Hi Sakia!
Your shot certainly qualifies! You must have taken it a little against the light, which adds to the effect. Good DOF and comp. The sort of that evokes the memory of your visit.
