Sunset is a wonderful time for photos but in Africa it is really special. In Chobe national Park we had two safaris; one with a special car in the early morning and then one sunset cruise on Chobe River. It was marvelous experience. We also slept in tents but not so close to the river. It could be risky because we saw in the river many crocodiles and hippos and elephants can swim either.

Its a beautiful sunset that you have captured in the heart of Africa. The wildness of the scenery - with the tall grass and the dense bushes, a few tall trees and the golden shimmer of the setting sun on the river - is tremendous.
Great colours. Appropriate sharpness and blurr. Beautiful composition with the orage ball of the sun visible from between the branches of the tall terr.
Thnaks for sharing this excellent moment.

Pas sûr que l'emplacement de la tente m'aurait pleinement rassuré!En tout cas, voilà un coucher de soleil que tu n'es pas prête d'oublier!

A beautiful sunset picture with very pleasant colours and a fine inclusion of the trees. I guess sunset is quite fast here, you must have had a limited period to catch such a moment. I lack all the sounds I imagine are present too...

The pink sunset tones make a lovely backdrop for these windswept trees, which are nicely mirrored in the fas running waters of the river. A calm and peaceful image very easy on the eyes.

Une très belle composition. Les couleurs sont très douces toutes en nuances de roses et d'oranges. Le point de vue est superbe et les arbres encadrent bien le sujet principal.

Before reading the note my spontaneous thought was "What about the crocodiles and hippos?". I wouldn't feel safe too close to this river. On the other hand it is fascinating to watch the little camp nicely surrrounded by trees just by the water. The colours of the sunset are marvellous and very well caprured, including the reflexions.

Another picturesque episode from your exotic journey. I like the colors and the atmosphere, spectacular nature.
Have a fine weekend.

I haven't been around a lot lately.
Nice camp, not so good to swim though.
Very pleasing scenery with the forlorn camp amongst the trees, the sun setting nicely behind the camp and this beautiful african light. Great compostion indeed.
have a good weekend

Ciao cara Itchy Feet
Aahh che bella questo tramonto. I love teh Pink Hour, it really is even more beautiful - perhaps more feminine and soft - than the true orange and red sunset. The tones are wonderfully subtle, I love the sillhouettes of the trees and of course those reflections are pure magic. You exposed the sun perfectly. Congratulations.

Wow! Just a page from GEO or National Geographic ))) Great photosession, Malgo. Attractive evening scene, very nice colours. And very informative note indeed.

wow, wspaniala fotografia, robi ogromne wrazenie.
Niesamowite kolory wieczoru i gdzies lekko przebijajace miedzy drzewami slonce.
Te sylwetki drzew wraz z odbiciami w wodzie sa przepiekne.

What a picture! Taken at the right moment with the best light of the day for such kind of pictures.
Beautiful composition with the sun hidden behind the trees.
