[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This spot in the Dhikala Zone of the Corbett Tiger Reserve happens to be my favourite..
I can simply go on looking at these charred trees...
And it seems this is not just my fav spot, elephants love it, too...for the huge supply of elephant grass they get to eat here, and top that with the Ramganga River flowing nearby (right near the mountains, over yonder).

I hope you like this shot...
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Goldy,
An amazing landscape, the charred dead trees telling their story against a fine mountain ridge backdrop. I like your low POV with the long grasses in the FG too.
A great shot MF and TFS!
All the best,

Hi Goldy
An artistic capture of the golden coloured grasslands. I can see why elephants would like the area so rich with grass. I'm sure the charred trees make good scratching posts as well. Nicely composed...it looks like a very hot day.

Hello Goldy,

Have a good weekend
Ciao Maurizio

Hi goldy,
a very special graphic presentation of the tree trunks and the soft mountain background. the foreground of grasses make it pleasant and calm.

Slav Goldy,
Interesting Landscape with nice natural colours and composition.

Ciao Goldy, beautiful landscape with splendid natural colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

I have seen hundreds of these in tall pines and in thick forests but here it appears of out space and time. I wonder at the cause of the charring? you give a somewhat stark and chilling landscape which demands a novelette!:-)

hello Goldy
with a fine POV and good composition you captured a very good subject, the dead figures make it particular

hello goldy,
you are lucky to reside near such a beautiful place, i liked the this lovely landscape for the natural look of it, peasing composition ,

Hello Goldy,
A very beautiful landscape showing the charred trees against the hazy mountains beyond. Beautiful muted colours and well composed too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

hello Goldy

beautiful Landscape photo with fine low POV and fine DOF,
i love to see the mountains of the background
blurred and like a silhouettes, TFS


Thakns Goldy for refreshing my memories. I do remember this site of the Dhikala. the elephant grass is nice and tall. We were just curious to get a sight of elephants but couldn't see any on that day.

Anywas this a great shot showing the great landscape of the Corbette national park. I just love it.


Hello Goldy,

The dry landscape is well captured, with the grass and the dead trees!
I like the feeling of depth in the scene, and the silhouetted trees stand out well on the hazy background...

Pablo -

Hi Goldy,

The diagonal line made by the trees is an asset to the composition. The point of view leads our eyes toward the mountains in the haze which is giving depth to the compoistion. The hot weather is blurring the background and putting in evidence the foreground. Have a nice day.


Dear Goldy
An interesting study of nature taking advantage of natural fertiliser (ash) after a fire i.e. in the foreground the bright, fresh, green grass - which obviously attracted the elephants. There is nothing like some juice grass compared with tree branches...

I like very much the layout in your photo: halfway up the stark, black tree stumps cutting in half the scenery and emphasising the green grass in the foreground. The slightly blurred mountains - seemingly far away - giving the viewer a feel of the vast distances in your country.

A very good landscape - very well presented.

Have a nice week-end
Kind Regards
