I was taking down the tent and packing my things before breakfast, very early in the morning on campsite, when I noticed wonderful moon that was setting over Okavango river. What to do? I grabbed my camera and ran fast to the better view point. I had time only for fast two shots before the moon disappeared.
It is kind of joke today:).

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. J'aime beaucoup ce soleil très net et très rond d'une couleur exceptionnelle. J'aime bien la légère brume qui survole l'eau.

Beautiful capture and excellent timing !! Unbelieveable colours in the early morning light. Without the notes, I thought it to be a typical sunrise in the tropics.
The serenity of the water, the still ness of the environment with the vegetation so still with deep and saturated colours...
Thanks for sharing.

This is no joke at all. You where quit right to grab your camera and shot away. The picture may not be the most well thought trough or technically perfect but it is still amazing. That moon, I was sure to look at the sun, and the mist on the water rescue this one nicely.
have a good time

Kia ora Malgorzata,
If this photo was taken a day or two ago it is the same full moon that I took a photo of rising over Waitangi on the Chatham islands, 800 kms east of New Zealand - as far east as you can get - & it was the same colour! Good photo & setting. The so-called joke has paid off! cheers, Neil

Ten obraz z Angoli zasługuje również na najwyższe wyrazy uznania. Podziękuj księżycowi - to jemu zawdzięczasz ten nastrojowy pejzaż

Very picturesque scene. A classical African image, very well taken.
Have a nice evening.

The moon forms a nice bright spot on the landscape that awakes.

Hello Malgorzata. I just wanted to write something from a beautiful evening mood - but it's the mood of the early morning. Anyway, the photo is beautiful. You have pressed the shutter at the right time. Very nice.

It's impossible to have a clear moon rise from my window because of the atmospheric veil.
Very good quite ambiance.
I see just a little focus problem.
Never mind :)

Ahh what a romantic image. I hope that shortly after this was taken, you threw down the camera and grabbed your Lazy Feet and gave him a big passionate kiss :)
Beautiful exposition here, both in terms of light and in terms of the clarity of the sun. The reflections are soft and magical. A wonderfullly peaceful (and as I said, romantic) scene. Thanks for sharing it with us.
