[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The end of another stimulating and exhilarating day in the Masai Mara reserve.

I couldn't resist taking this photo of the silhoette of acacia trees on the plains at day's end. A surreal moment in an awesome location.

This is a scan from one of my slide photos. Taken with a Canon EOS SLR camera, I used a Cokin soft blue filter to change the natural colours of this awesome sunset. I also used a soft starburst filter for added effect. TFV.

Bonjour Martyn,
C'est tout à fait le genre de photo qui représente le Kenya pour moi... manque juste le Kilimanjaro en fond ;o)
Couleurs magnifiques, la silhouette des arbres est un facteur de réussite.
Bonne journée

very nice silhoette in the evening

Beautiful Photopainting.

Wonderful work that you did on this image Martyn but having a good idea in my mind of how wonderful this location must be at sunset I am convinced that you started off with all that is required for a good photo and just added the filters to create perfection!

Wia!

Bonjour Martyn,
Magnifique coucher de soleil aux teintes très chaudes qui nous transporte dans une ambiance ethnique.
Bravo et bonne journée.

Dear Martyn,
these trees are impressive.
very smart silhouettes and back wine-color sky is wonderful.
the special calmness at sunset time in Kenya is well captured in this image.
thank you,
