Even after travelling to Kenya and the world famous game reserves there, I have to say that Namibia takes a lot of beating. The peacefulness and sheer beauty of Nkasa Lupala would be difficult to better. Gliding through the reeds one hears the swish as the boat brushes against them, a flap of wings as a bird takes to the air, the plop of a fish as he jumps out of the water. Perhaps the most amazing noise was the sound of bells. Yes, as the sun sinks in the sky a million bells star ringing. This is the sound of the bell frog tinkling in the dusk light.

The visual effect is superb, there is sky everywhere, what gives such an open and fresh sensation. The sharpness is amazing as well as the depth of field and the light. Thanks Rosemary!

You should be the spokeperson for the Namibian Ministry of Tourism Dear Rosemary. :-)
The colors, as Juan rightly put it are amazingly saturated, but what is more, the clouds add a 3D aspect to it, as if it were not a digital but a slide picture.

I love the vivid, saturated colours and the dynamic composition with the big share of the skies you've decided to include in the picture. Moreover, the reflections in the water are superb.

A wonderful blue sky with nice reflections in the mirror like pond. Good sharpness & punchy light contrasts yet still with superb shadow detail & no oe. Tfs!

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Le sujet principal devient les brins de joncs jaunes dans l'image et le ciel magnifique qui recouvre tout.

There is nothing startling here, nothing out of the ordinary and yet the beauty is quite startling. It is difficult to desribe. Possibly it's the mood of calm, the sense of huge world, far from anywhere. I just love that big sky, with its reflections in the water and the lovely light on the tall reeds.
Have a lovely day,
dkmurphys (42633) 2012-03-14 3:56

This picture has an amazing 3D feel to it, in particular those wonderful clouds. As always with your shots, stunning colours.

I was thinkig that make a travel and have a pretty day like that must be gratifying. Wonderful colors and details. One question are there crocodiles in this river?
I will see the other photo from there.

une fois de plus des couleurs très fortes intenses et bien contrastées, sous des lumières vraiment efficaces.
Un ciel de toute beauté, il vaut le détour à lui seul.

Hi Rosemary, I missed some of your photos. I wrote about this one but I do not see it, must go something wrong. Marvelous place here, not that I would think it is Africa. So that's caprivi, this funny strip of land. marvelous compositio n with the sky above and below. beautiful these grasses, suc a trip going slowly around in mokoro must be wonderful experience. Maybe I will see it too? Magnificent capture.

You have taken this low angle shot well exposing the beautiful sky. The cattails by the water's edge provide excellent contrast and good depth in the frame.
Thanks and have a nice day.
