I visited a friend at Nkorho Bush Lodge in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in Mpumalanga. I had a few Jack Daniel's too much the previous night and missed the game drive the next morning. I however came across this beautifull scene where the sun just raised its head and trying to peep through the mist. Hope you like it.

Hello Hannes,
Very good shot, lovely composition.
Only little problem I can see is thr
dark corners. Did you use a filter??
BUT, that's just me.
Well done,

The silouette of the tree shows up very good in this picture. The sepia coloured mist gives the photo a mystic mood. Excellent lighting. Hence a brilliant posting my friend. TFS.

great photo.

This is such a beautiful picture. The fog adds a nice mood to it. I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing

Beautiful silhouettes of the trees, they are especially pretty peaking through the mist. Too bad you missed the game drive but I am glad that you ended up with this shot. It looks sleepy and peaceful. The colors are very soft and muted which adds to the mood.

Hi Hannes
This is a lovely composition, everything including those trees in the background, lost in the (dust?), is beautiful. It reminds me of my trip to Kenya long ago. The flare around the sun is very peculiar, almost surnatural. TFS
Sorry you missed the game drive.
