What a beautiful idyllic scene...this is how I envision the African plains. Superbly captured. My only nit and it is very minor is I would crop off some of the bottom.

Bu fotoğraf Afrika'yı ne kadar güzel anlatıyor. Söylenecek fazla birşey kalmamış.
Eline gözüne sağlık Alptekin.

WOW, this is Africa !! What a beautiful picture. Very warm colours. Also very peacefull. You can almost hear the silence.


Tranquil setting Alptekin. Very nice capture. The silhouette of the tree canopy is fantastic against the setting sun. Nice work. TFS

I hope to be someday in such place at sunset. Superb mood, perfect photo. Africa at its best. To favs!

Maybe a little crop in the bottom, but what a wonderful mood the sunset gives here. The nice and soft silhouettes and the coulrs makes a great shot !

Ohh yeah, arent they something apart , the sunsets of Africa, Alptekin ?
Take a look at my Ethiopian images here in TN, to see some similar stuff !

Brilliant capture Alptekin, love the tone and mood of this scene. Very nice work.
