This place is very close to this in the serengeti np.I really liked the different landscapes there sometimes jungle sometimes just long wide field and sometimes like in this picture some rocks with a lot of agamas(reptiles)
Also some lions are relaxing there between some bushes or trees.
Hope you like this shot some minutes before the rain.

Beautifull landscape with these stones.

a simple but very effective composition. Light is really good and I simply love how green plants in foreground look so powerfull.

une photo fantastique pour l'ambiance qu'elle projette sur mon écran. Un ciel douteux et moins lumineux que le sol, ce qui crée un effet interessant.
Des couleurs fortes et séduisantes et un cadrage qui équilibre bien la scène.

You have very much talent!
Excellent PP work!

Contrasts between rocks and dark sky are really eye-popping. Perfectly balanced parts as same its clarity, colors and sharpness. Very good one, congratulations.
AROBN54 (11473) 2008-04-19 16:57
It's wonderful, Toba.
Such a simple and eye catching compostion. Beautiful light, excellent contrast and I love those rich, well saturated colors. I particularly like the way there is nothing behind the two larger rocks but that great sky. I like the bit of green shrubbery, too, in front of the stones. Great shot!! Thanks and take care,

I love this shot featuring superb composition, vivid colors and textures, and a genuinely sharp resolution. The combination of earthy colors in the ground and rocks, the lush vegetation and the brilliant blue of the sky. Absolutely first rate shot.
gneufeld (15890) 2008-04-19 18:52
I like this shot. Colors are vivid and the details well presented and very interesting. Very well done and TFS. Gerald

The colour contrast here is awesome and beautiful between the land and the heavy sky!
I loved the lighting here and it's beautiful

Hi Tobias, nice photo with great composition and colors!

This place looks like the Devlis Marbles in Australie. Very photogenic rock formations and you made something real nice from it in this vertical composition. The deep colour setting is something i like, but also the play with the green bush in the foreground against that yellow/golden light on the rocks...very nice.
romanaa (7966) 2008-04-20 0:46
wonderful simple composition with gorgeous light, nice warm tones and perfect sharpness.
snunney (86452) 2008-04-20 1:00
A fine composition under a wonderful light. The vertical format is well chosen to emphasise the rocks against the intense blue sky. Superb tones and clarity.
feather (51130) 2008-04-20 2:58
The pre-rain light has given you some wonderful saturated colours. Nicely composed image with the three rocks and three bushes making it work well. Well done
JCG (35129) 2008-04-20 6:12
One would say the landscape of another planet !!! I like much contrasts here. I think that there is to have strong rain to see this so gray sky. In all the cases this sky makes it possible to emphasize well the pretty color of these rocks and the environment. Beautiful and interesting glance Tobias, cheer.
With all my friendships and very good Sunday,

Hi, Toba -
A nice simple (or simple-seeming) landscape that works well both as a representation of the area and as a dramatic photo in its right - the threatening sky, the almost-threatening rocks, the creative use of lighting. Nicely done!
carper (96) 2008-04-20 11:39
I like it Tobias,
this is a very good landscape shot of yours, fantastic colours, good contrast and fine shot, I like this much more then your last Lion. good photojob, have a nice evening.
Philippe (11836) 2008-04-20 11:50
Hi, Tobias. The rocks are an important element in your composition and the low POV you've chosen brings out the one on the left very well against the sky. The contrasts are well marked. Maybe I would have included a little more grass in the bottom of the picture to create a diagonal line in the foreground.

Bei uns gibt eineen Ort, der nennt sich Felsenmeer. Eien Sage sagt, dass Risen sich von gegenüberleigenden bergen mit Steinen beworfen hätten. Das Bild hat mich sofort daran erinnert. Sehr schöne Komposition mit den dunklen Himmel als Hintergrund
Jonathan_Tree (0) 2008-04-21 1:25
Amazing lightness. Very nice colors. Original sharpness.
PixelTerror (0) 2008-04-21 3:28
Nice rocks, it looks much like the devil's pebbles in Australia's NT and the stormy light adds mucg value to this image, did you consider a horizontal framing as well ?
Have a nice day JY
tedesse (25133) 2008-04-21 3:32
Beautiful composition,lovely colours and good sharpness.
MarianneS (15338) 2008-04-21 9:37
Great light on the rocks while the sky, so dark, offers a good contrast.
I am surprised by the form of the rocks.Your pov makes me fear that the rock on the top is going to roll down :s
cepekdong (3676) 2008-04-21 11:53
schöne felsen toba, das licht ist klasse ! vielleicht wäre es noch besser gewesen etwas mehr von dem gras unten zu zeigen und dafür etwas himmel zu kappen ! dennoch klasse
pablominto (53744) 2008-04-21 12:38
This is a fine abscraction of nature, making use of what shapes there are to create artwork!
Well done, the result is pleasant to looks at...
Blairfraser (849) 2008-04-22 14:23
This is a really great picture. I like your interesting composition with the rocks. I also really like the very bold colours here.
I hope you didn't get wet!
zmey (7335) 2008-04-23 4:04
wonderful light here! sun + stormy skies are almost a winner in a landscape. almost feels as if the sun was "biting" a chunk ouf ot the scenery. i like the curved lead-in formed by the greenery and the way you have placed the stones. excellent shot, friend!
with warm regars,
leo61 (0) 2008-04-23 10:36
Magisches Licht,tolle Farben,perfekte Komposition.Dein POV etwas mehr rechts(wenn möglich) wäre vielleicht besser gewesen um diese 3 Felsen getrennt zu sehen ....nur so eine Idee
Aber auch so,wunderschön ,ein Stilleben der natur.
euryan (8438) 2008-04-23 11:08
Yes, I love it. The low light hitting the rocks really brings out the orange colors, and the deep blue sky in the background contrasts very nicely. I thought this must have been a photo of Devils Marbles in Australia when I first saw it. Great capture.
fabdemacedo (457) 2008-04-25 2:04
Hi Tobias, very interesting picture, special athmosphere, nice colours and contrast. Nice composition.
I've visited your gallery and you've taken very nice pictures of animals...
To answer your question I'm actually in zanzibar, I've been there for 2 weeks and i'll be back in France at the beginning of june...
Thank you for sharing
Angshu (56190) 2008-04-26 23:41
The stones have a great contrast against the dark overcast sky. The colours, deep & saturated work well, with the green foliage in the FG as well. Well done
TopGeo (38206) 2008-04-30 11:10
Hi Tobias! Very interesting scene. Good point of view. Very good composition with stones! excellent depth in landscape this interest sky. Nice lightness, very nice colors.
Hellas (6845) 2008-05-23 2:26
you did your best for enhancing the attribution of colors! Beautiful and saturated and a frame rich in contrasts and shapes!
thub69 (403) 2008-06-21 7:25
Beautiful shot from Serengeti, the colors and contrasts are beautiful!
jimkilgallon (0) 2008-07-18 13:43
I like your gallery lots, you have a great range in your gallery from action shots, nature, portraits and good old landscapes. I like this, the lighting is superb with a very wise POV chosen. The colour and shadows are spot on with the rocks very interesting to look at. The moody skies finish the scene of perfectly.
alexisborel (755) 2008-09-25 10:55
I also like this one.
Sky's presence is really strong, and you had choose a good framing with thoses boulders on the ground, specifically the left one, higher than the others.
