Here an impression of the landscape in the mountainous southwest of Uganda. We came down from the wet green mountains pof Ruhija where the Gorilla's dwell and could after days of dirtroad feel the confort of a smooth tarred road again. It almost felt like riding in France, going up to 2500 meters again and the heat was gone.

It looks quite a fertile landscape here, not what I would have imagined at all. A well composed image, with the framing bushes creating depth and adding some contrasting colour. Well exposed with good colours and sharpness.

Quel beau paysage luxuriant. J'aime beaucoup les fleurs à l'avant plan qui semble s'ouvrir pour nous laisser voir la vallée au loin.J'aime beaucoup la saturation des couleurs.

It is not my impression of Uganda, at all! It displays all the greenery and, flowers and cultivation of a more temperate European country!
I love how you have included the flowers in the f/g, creating a natural frame as well as promoting the sense of depth. The colours and the scenery are quite stunning. I have no difficulty understanding the change and the relief you experienced when you reached this oasis-like place!
My warm regards,

Hello Gerrit, I have read what you wrote about your trips and I find it fantastic, to travel in areas less touristy, to see the unspoiled landscape, meet ordinary people, I would love it all. I will not joun you, I can't ride a bike, so I must use just public transportation :(. Marvelous composition, speciall atrractive is this red flower that frames it.

Hello Gerrit. A beautiful photo from a foreign country. Here everything looks colorful and exotic. The small plots of farmers show that there is cultivated land. But the photo also recalls that Uganda is a country in transition. The photo pleases me very well.

Wonderful ..... these landscapes of Uganda, I see in your gallery, choose this as the red flowers in the foreground, you impact the view, after enjoying continuous with the green of the crops in the valley and woodlands slopes, mountains in the background give a good DOF.
Very good color, which gives much strength to the image.
Superb light management and sharpness.
Very well seen and well taken.
Have a nice day.

Gerrit, I've taken almost the same type of picture in Nepal with red flowers on the left, the forest was destroyed to cultivate the land and to build roads, a modified landscape, vivid hues, good light
