Hi Vic
Great presentation and managing climate of this place:)

Superb landscape, beautifully captured - exposure and depth of field managed perfectly here. Great work.

Terrific composition, the acacia trees give great contrast and interest to this photo and the mountain in the BG is awesome.

Hi Vic,
I like much this appealing and exotic ambiance. Excellent sense of space and composition. The contrast between the sharp and clear foreground and the faded colors of mountains in background enhance the depth here. Beautifully done! Annie

hello Vic

your landscape is very beautiful. It shows the typical trees of the sabane over the lovely soft mountain in the Bg
