[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Soon it will be that time of year again when the Highveld is adorned with patches of gold until the first strong wind blows it all away. I considered cropping off a substantial part of the sky but retained it as I think it contributes to the late afternoon atmosphere.

Hello Neels,

The hazy landscape provides a great sense of depth in the frame, and makes the autumn foliage stand out even more!
The seasonal atmosphere is well recorded, and I recognize some features from my own place except we often have snow this season hehehe...
A lovely landscape, nicely presented!

Hello Neels,
It was a good choice to leave the large sky, makes the picture more interesting and gives us a great feeling of depth. Lovely patch of trees with autumnal foliage. I don't mind a certain lack of sharpness, it enhances the melancholic atmosphere of this shot. I like a lot.
Have a nice day
Kind regards

your photographs are very special in its abstract form and very painting like style. This one is one of them, it looks so pretty and challenge the visual creativity very much. The shades and the hues here are very lively and pleasant to look at.
Very special composition from SA.
