[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this picture at Orpen, in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Before sunrise, Orpen rest camp gate opens and as usual we drove away in search of different kind of animals. We stopped here just before Sunrise and my good luck a lone Impala was walking at that moment of sunrise. It was a foggy morning. I clicked a few pictures and drove away in search of water body.

Hello Sikumar

A very nice painting, so beautiful warm light and atmosphere. It is realy impressive. Excellent!!!!!! I put it to my favorite. Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice WE.



Very nice sunset atmosphere - thanks for this beautiful view.

Hello Srikumar,

Hope you are well dear. Sorry I have come to this late but as they say better late than never....smile.....this is really one of your best from your visit to South Africa and Kruger National Park.More splendid is the display of light and shade in this shot than one I have posted of a prinia.The browns, reds, greys and greens are so superb and the focus and time is apt.The alert Impala is the main attraction.This is a shot of great beauty. Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

warm regards/Abid

Ola colega bela foto com composição muito boa parabéns por esta imagem.

Looks like a painting.Nice to see versetility in you.Perfect atmosphere....

Hi Srikumar,
From the thumbnail view I though George Veltchev uploaded a new photo. Unlike Luciano, I don't find the image overdarkened, for me the way how you played with lights and shadows is gorgeous. Pleasantly composed, absolutely fantastic shot! At first I thought the photo was made around sunset (before reading the title and the note). Excellent work, bravo!
Best regards, László

Ciao Srikumar. Fantastic warm tones and colours with maginicent golden light.
