Where you find the best sunrises in Africa.... Taken from the breakfast table. It is almost if you expect a Lion or Leopard to appear from the mist.

excellent landscape dear Hannes

Great compo in b&w; graphical aspect; I like different tones of grey because of morning mist.

Good B&W work!
Fine contrast & good moment!

Hi, this is a nice shot of the early morning mists, it is quite eerie, as you say anything could emerge from the trees. regards, Jean

J'aime beaucoup

Oh Hannes, I do envy you!
Even without color Africa is gorgeous...

I realy like this image in B/W
Nice and sharp and crystal clear in spite of the mist.
And yes... you would expect a lion or a leopard to appear... or maybe an elephant...

Great one!

Beautiful captured. You do not miss the colours. Great

I fully agree with your note!
Superb black and white. the various shapes and foggy scene are creating a very unique ambiance. Brrrrr!!!! Beware of the danger around . Spooky mood well captured. It is better than if it would be in color !
Well done Hannes.

Hi Hannes,
impressive compo in B&W. It gives an aura of desolation. Great work!

Mysterious fog, really nice atmosphere, B&W very well used !

Hi there!
I love this pic! Great handling of the light has created a stunning atmospheric shot. Good composition too.
I have a smilar "misty" shot, but I think yours is better.
Well done!

Wonderful image Hannes. The B&W format is great for this. There is a strong contrast of the light soft values of the fog against the hard dark lines of the branches. GREAT!!! This contrast creates wonderful tension, as your comment about expecting a big cat to appear reflects. Classic!

This reminds me of the film The Ghost and the Darkness ...man that has led to chronic nightmares of rampant chase scenes. :P

Wonderful image, I never got a chance to see Mpumalanga... quite the shame, I've heard parts of it are really stunning. The hues you caught here look totally stunning, and truly dramatic.



excellent catch of the mist... great shots
