Evening ecstasy!

Evening ecstasy!
Evenings were very short in Kazi, by 4:45PM it was almost going pitch dark! But the light we were getting for around last 30 min before the sunset was something to be experienced to believe! The sublime golden light falling on the lush green elephant grass was turning the already green ones into shining and glittering strands! It was 'green gold' all around, but only for couple of tens of minutes!

I was excited to see the bright moon in the deep blue sky and was fortunate enough to have sighted the rhino just a few min back!

Thanks Ganesh! Yes I had a wonderful time. Forget rain, not even cloudy on any of the days we stayed in Kazi.

Nice choice to go wide man! I am stunned by the colors and of course the execution of this image. What is so special about this image is the nice long shadow of the rhino! and seeing cloud covered skies perilously this season, I am glad you could get the clear skies. Wish you were there for the leonids ;-)

Lovely image Bhattre. Did you think of getting wider than this? May be stiching two more frames - unless there were other destractions, asking more ? :) It is easy to comment :)

Very nice visual. Kazi looks so wonderful when we get to see the wider perspectives :).

Just glorious, Ashwini. Looking at this image almost makes me feel the soft warmth of the light! Lovely colours and composition. The combination of lovely green and blue makes this a thorough visual treat!

Lovely postcard feel to the image. Says all about the location. Perfect exposure.
