I had captured this picture in Lower Sabie, Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Early Morning, we drove towards Skukuza and saw this lonely Impala was walking towards The Sun. Beautiful sight to me with splendid light. May be species is quite common, but the atmosphere was really attractive to me. A beautiful memory.....

Ciao Srikummar, great capture of superb creature, fantastic light, wonderful warm colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

This is lovely.. the golden sunlight creates a beautiful ambiance. It could've been slightly zoomed out, but still a nice pic.


Hi Sri,
A new day, a new picture from you... Another sunrise, another fantastic game with lights and shadows... another day when TrekNature was worth coming to... another day when I learned something new again, being exact how the shady subject can stand up well against the bright, sunny background... Thanks for the feelings and for this lovely image, this symphony of photographic art.
Best regards, László

Hello Srikumar,
Another excellent image with Africa.....Lovely antelope in the morning sun.
Great capture,

Hi Srikumar,
a wonderful pic full of atmosphere.

Hi Srikumar,

The impala is well places in the frame. The point of view is showing the details of the impala. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Srikumar

The lateral golden light of your photo it is very very beautiful,
fine POV and love that you did not closer shot and preferred
to show the environment of this African wild animal, TFS


Hello Srikumar,
emotionally quite appealing to see this lonely impala touched by the first rays of an early morning sun that is lightening the dry grassland as if set on fire while the forests and hills in the background are still remaining in the dark. Very attractive, eye-catching image, thank you!
With best regards,

Hi Srikumar
Great moment and amazing sunlight.
Maybe the animal is quite common, but the composition is outstanding.
