Where my last post of the mountains around Kisoro has surprised some of you because Uganda brings out associations of 'typical African' landscapes, this one will be more in line with the expectations.
I have decided to make a series of the landscapes of Uganda to show the diversity of this country.
Here you see the view from our camp just outside the southern tip of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, 'at the river Ishasha', a delicious place that i can recommend to all.
We had just finished the most exiting part of our cycling journey because we came through a part where lions could walk around and we actually saw a group of Elephants passing by.
In the camp, where we ate at the beach of the river, you could here the sounds of monkeys, elephants and lions at night in the distance.

A pleasing capture of this lush rural scene. The brown tones of the thatched hut surrounded by greenery make a fine focal point whilst the hut is nicely placed off-centre. The farm workers bring the scene to life. I like the light and agreeable natural colours.

J'aime beaucoup cette très belle scène de la vie quotidienne dans cette partie du monde. Tu gardes une certaine distance avec les travailleurs qui permet de bien apprécier le paysage environnant.

you have composed the scene very well with the hut well placed for maximum impact whilst the workers in the field help to provide action and interest.
The soft colours are a delight to view.

very good idea to exhibit a series of landscape of Uganda to show its diversity, peoples were cultivating in the field and a little hut at the side of the frame, well composition and good color balance.
with warm regards and thanks,

Beautiful landscape in combination with the daily life image of the local people with their daily activities. Love the golden green field and the distance hills and forest. It's good to know there was still so much green on our planet earth.
While most people probably think it is scary to camp in places that you can hear the wild animals at night, I think the opposite. It is such a pleasure to be among them. It seem all creatures has their own places. We don't bother them and they don't bother us. Off course occasionally we run into each other and conflict occurs and that what most people fear.
Anyway, great shot here.

Une image très bien composée de ce lieu dont les teintes sont parfaitement rendues sous cette lumière.
