[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the arid wilderness areas of the Western part of Margarita Island. Sparsely populated, the area is dominated by low dune like hills with shrub and cactus trees.

This particular spot could only be reached by a 4 wheel drive vehicle, as there were no roads here. Despite that and the remote location, the location appears to be well visited, going by the amount of garbage and old plastic bottles and pop cans one can find. It is a pity that these places are not well cared for by the government or the local residents.

Hi Sunil,
Beautiful light in this landscape shot, a rather wild one, indeed!
I like the rippled water of the pond. The illuminated green grass leading to the cool mountain scape and the dramatic sky, all render an interesting and pleasant presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Sunil.

Its also a pity for the people who are hell bent on leaving their rubbish and cause untold problems.

That said, lol.....its a beautiful oasis and plenty of water for an arid place, even the trees are lush green.
I like the scene of action clouds evident, the undulations of the ground and the minimal skyline, it works well for me.

stv ;o))

Hello Sunil, this is one of those shots where I feel as if I really there!
Good DoF and PoV.
What a pity that no-one takes care of this spot! They ought to take their litter home!
Tfs, regards Jean.

Boa tarde Sunil,
I consider this as one of your best photos. The POV is spectacular and was able to create a special DOF.
Colours, sharpness, density and textures all good and fine.

Hi Sunil,

Looks similar to Moreton or Fraser islands in south Queensland. Good sharpness & composition with natural looking colour. The pale yellow red sand conrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

Ciao Sunil, lovely and peaceful landscape with beautiful river, splendid light, wonderful natural colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
