Good Morning Nile - 2


     The Nile, as I have mentioned earlier, has many interesting facets. At places it has ferocious rapids and at places it can be very calm. In Jinja (Uganda) it's banks are mostly covered with thick vegetation. Both sunrise and sunset are beautiful, if you have the time to wait and watch. I have already explored a sunrise scene earlier on this blog. This is a follow up of the same sunrise some time later though at a different spot. The mist clearing up, calm waters disappearing into infinity, the sun rising, its light playing tricks with the leaves of the thick vegetation...it was a breathtaking scene. I was more or less satisfied with the results. What do you think?

  1. The intention of catching the sun playing hide and seek through the branches is really well caught! The reflection in the water is looking authentic and the merging of the yellow with the blue has been well graded too.

  2. I think that you have rendered very well the magic of sunrise on the river, the mist, the reflection of the first sunbeams on the water... I hope I will have the chance to see the Nile sooner or later!
