Mahananda II : This is the second photograph from the Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary.In this shot you can see a spot where wild animals including leopards and bisons come to drink water inside the wildlife sanctuary.A small stream flows down the Darjeeling hills and passes through the sanctuary only to join the Mahananda river later.The Mahananda River is a trans-boundary river that flows through the Indian states of West Bengal and Bihar, and Bangladesh. Right bank tributary Mechi forms part of Nepal's eastern boundary with West Bengal and the Kankai crosses out of Nepal.

A very nice jungle scene with excellent light management. Superb colours of the soil and the sky as well. Perfect atmosphere created.

un bel paesaggio ripreso molto bene con la giusta alternanza di colore e nello stesso tempo di luci e di ombre, quesi che tu volessi ricordare il fascino misterioso sempre presente in ogni luogo dell'India.
Una buona nitidezza si accompagna ad un gradevbole, anche se un po' marcato, uso del colore.
Ciao e buona serata

Jolie photo simple de ce bon coin de nature qui nous donne une bonne impression d'apaisement.Belle harmonie de couleurs entre les teintes chaudes de ces bancs de sable et le bleu de ce ciel.

Lovely nature scenery. I like the earth tones in the middle surrounded by greenery. The sky is blue as blue can be, I love such cloudless days.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the untouched nature with rich greenery, red clay and the narrow tributary. For a wild animal, it seems to a comfortable place, as you note in here.

Water reservoir in the forest, animal naturally drawn to such a place, with lavish green surrounding.
Well spotted and applied.

An attractive landscape captured under a pleasant warm light. I like the point of view looking along the water course with its red sandy banks, which contrast nicely with the greenery.
Sergiom (45398) 2013-10-01 4:50
J'aime beaucoup le point de vue sur le point d'eau qui semble sortir de la végétation luxuriante pour offrir un brin de fraîcheur.
eldancer1 (20772) 2013-10-01 7:51
Beautiful landscape and so green! I guess I've been living on the desert for a long time. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
Noel_Byrne (13314) 2013-10-01 9:11
Beautiful natural scenery, but something here would tell me to be very cautious, and your note alludes to the animals that would drink here. It does look like a place for animals, not people and that makes the image all the more magical. Nicely done.
All the best
Silvio1953 (105467) 2013-10-01 11:20
Ciao Farhat, great view of lovely place, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (91276) 2013-10-01 12:56
A nice clear blue sky and good color and sharpness. I like the reflected blue skylight in the stream. Excellent colour, sharpness and saturation. The warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and reddish tinted earth is superb. Good framing and the fg vegetation adds depth and layering. Tfs!
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-10-01 14:28
nature takes care of everything and the animals know where to go to get their water, very nice dark green surroundings and great light!
all the best

mirosu (8112) 2013-10-02 6:20
An idyllic landscape scene so very well captured in nice colors & light and beautifully composed. Your POV is simply excllent; I really like this with the fresh looking landscape especially the dominant green has brought so much liveliness to this shot, wonderful detail and contrasting so superbly against the blue sky. Indeed a peaceful and tranquil. Superb photo.
Beside of this, today I found that my son Roman in Switzerland started posting to this gallery.
Can I ask you and your friends to give support to him? I'd happy to see more of his photos here (I'm staying at the present in Malaysia).
You can find Roman photos under:
You can also find my photos from India under

You share a very nice picture.
The sky is blue and sunny but shadow on vegetation and water give a mood of intimate and we expect the animals are very near.
Thank you for sharing and congratulations.
adramad (30905) 2013-10-02 8:03
Wonderful landscape with this abundance of trees surrounding the current of the river, the reddish color of the soil gives a nice contrast.
Good brightness and sharpness, with vibrant colors.
Very well done.
Have a nice day.

That's what I call a pristine environment adorned of
so much greenery that it appears as virgin wilderness!
I wonder why the rocks symmetrically piled on each side of pond are for.
Refreshing mood indeed.
gervaso (9247) 2013-10-03 9:05
Wonderful view of this interesting place, surrounded by so much green! A place that seems very quiet, but I believe the preys don't think the same... Excellent colors and sharpness! Wonderful composition!
Cricri (92167) 2013-10-03 9:20
Un très joli paysage verdoyant avec des teintes chaudes de la terre, beau contraste des couleurs et POV
delpeoples (48592) 2013-10-03 21:38
Namaskar dear Farhat
I like the warm colours and golden light here. The scene has been beautifully composed and exposed. My dear friend who now lives in Ireland is from Bengal. She would love to see this photo of her homeland.
Well done, have a nice day

Captivating note preceding an also captivating landscape, made more interesting knowing what it is plenty of wild life
What I like the more is the light and shadows on the orange earth

Very good lights ambiance
jacquest (16388) 2013-10-10 3:31
Good shot of this wild place and watering hole. The colors are well saturated with good sharpness and the framing with the trees is well done.
josepmarin (56479) 2013-10-15 3:05
a nice and simple composition, created about the natural beauty of this river area, where the various green tones play a good aesthetical role, in a good contrast with the golden sand and the blue of the sky.
The composition is beautiful. Well done.
mkamionka (27069) 2013-10-15 4:54
I tried to spot a leopard but may be they are hidden in shadows or digesting their meal elsewhere.
Very nice wild area, well presented with some vegetation in the foreground,
pierrefonds (51000) 2013-10-19 18:04
The length of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the scenery. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
Kielia (21521) 2013-10-23 5:52
you are presenting a very well composed impression of this interesting Piece of nature. I guess it is really adventurous to watch the wild animals here.
Light and colors make the image very attractive. My compliments!
maloutim (9467) 2013-10-23 19:10
Lovely, colourful shot of the wildlife sanctuary.
What a treat it would be to spot the animals drinking in the river, probably early in the morning or late in the evening.
Thanks for sharing.
s_lush (16048) 2013-10-30 14:54
A highly picturesque, green and peaceful place! You have chosen a very favorable point of view and well-balanced composition, where the lush vegetation makes a luxurious natural frame the river view. Beautiful colors and perfect quality of the image!
Oceania (3231) 2013-10-31 7:30
If this picture include any wild life, it would be amazing. But I know it's not easy. Specifically in daylight time. animals are more likely appear at night.
ourania (18616) 2013-10-31 10:09
this place looks luscious, peaceful and attractive. Your picture has great depth and gives us very interesting details and textures. The colours are natural, vivid and lovely, you've captured a very agreeable light and your note fills the viewer with anticipation at the sight of the mysterious shadows.
