We had very good rains and the vegetation (veld) is beautiful, from my own perspective. The vegetation in most places are a bit too dense for game viewing. With me and my camera in game-photography mode I saw this grassy hill. Does this non-dramatic panorama has any appeal?
Sadly, not quite middle of the day but close to it. The game was difficult to spot due to the very dense vegetation, I am just fond of the locality. I think this could have been a very nice shot, either very early or late afternoon. My chances of finding the location is low.
Aart, nice capture technically and your framing is nice. The emotion isn't there for me. In spite of the grass being thick, I couldn't help looking for a definitive subject; I kept looking for a hint of a cheetah or bison somewhere in the tall grass.
Your picture reminded me of one of those famous pics by National Geographic. On one occasion a photographer grabbed a long lens and zoomed in on a lion amidst the tall grass.
Another option in a situation like this is to pick just one tree with surrounding grass as a subject.
The two trees in the middle overlapping each other with the third one to the right, by itself, takes away from their role as lead subjects.
That said, seems like a good place to be with a camera in hand.
Kent, I appreciate you detailed evaluation. This particular grass is about 3-4 feet tall so you can imagine all the potential game that can hide in this.
What attracted me to the shot was that, due to the slope, the trees were about on the same horizontal line. A mistake I often do is when I frame a shot, I give all my attention to the subject and "ignore" potential disturbing elements. I have to agree with you, there should have been something more exciting.
