Welcome to TN, Olivier!!
This is a great first photo, I especially like the golden tones and glitter of the sea.
Wonderful silhouette of the hippo, I hope that the baby is ok?
Thank you for this fine composition and note. Great job!

Je n'avais jamais vu un hippo à la mer, maintenant c'est fait. Mais la photo est aussi très bien réussie. Merci

Belle pêche ...
Très bonne gestion de l'exposition pour cette photo en contre-jour. Ton cadrage est (à mon gout) un peu trop centré. Ta note est agréable, belle histoire (espérons qu'elle s'est bien terminée)
TFS, la première d'une série sur le gabon ?

Welcome to TN.
Short on time again today, but enough time to look at this lovely shot. Very good POV. Good depth of colour. Sharpness, clarity and detail are all spot on. Nicely composed work. Great silhouette. Thanks.

We can only hope, if most of them have been killed, I would hate to think that the baby drowned.

Great capture, Olivier!!! I would sort out the right side a bit but otherwise perfect. Great light and colours! TFS for this unusual photo :-) Greetings from Poland! Michal

What a great photo and an amazing experience for you.
Its fantastic to see this - river beast - in such an unusual situation.
I have just been watching a documentary on the Gabon, which featured these hippos and the other wildlife that comes down to the seashore from the forest.
So I thought I would look on TN, to see if I could find any photos and yours was one of the first ones that I saw.
Excellent photo, lovely light and a great setting.
