I had captured this picture at "Sunset Dam";Kruger National Park.It was a cloudy day,but later when Sun rises this Dam was looking really beautiful.Dead Fever Tree looked more white due to Sunlight was on its white branches and from the buffalo weaver Nest,so many birds were flying over the Dam.The water of the Dam was glittering.Animals were busy to drink water.We also drank the beauty of mother nature and returned to Skukuza Rest Camp.

Hi Srikumar,a bit dark for me,but truly beautiful this scenery from Kruger,the dead tree in the water and in this special light is truly nice,i like its decentralized location in the composition,great colors too.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

What a heavily landscape!!!
The dead tree in the almost centre steals the show!!!
Best and most kind regards,
P.S. To stitch 3 or 5 or 10 images you need a special software. Many are available for free. I use Photoshop CS4.

Hello Srikumar,
Fantastic landscape in splendid colours with the tree as an eye catcher. The sharpness is great and so is the composition. Beautiful reflection of the tree.

thanks greeting lou

Lovely shot Srikumar!
Beautiful sky, nearly flat topped trees in the backdrop, deep blue calm water and a tree that is bare in an artistic manner, all these components make it a beautiful composition. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,

Beautiful picture Srikumar..In a way balanced dead tree and the blue just seem to be made for each other. Nicely done.
