Excellent, Louis...I love how you have used portrait format for this landscape panorama...
Louis: Thank you Ray, I needed the creek included for some depth perspective.
It is showing us the way
Louis: My point, exactly, Elizabeth smile
I'm sure someone will come along and say, "It's a sign!" smile It's also very lovely, Louis.
Louis: They shouldn't do that, Ginnie, as branches point in all directions in nature. But they probably will.

Those ills beyond look very inviting Louis
Louis: The ills of those hills is that they become mountains when you start to hike them.

Did you climb across the tree to get over the river, Louis?
Louis: This river is sometimes deceptively strong, but this time I could walk through - which the young ones shouldn't try. There is a bridge about 100 meters distant.
They went thattaway!
Louis: Others went the other way smile

I get always a bit melancholic when I see fallen trees.
Louis: This one is a poplar - they don't live that long. By its size it would have been around fifty years, and was standing too close to the river, which eroded the soil on which it was standing. Nature just ran its course.
Being in Africa, there is probably an elephant or zebra behind you at the watering hole. Turn around now. smile
Louis: Heh, heh. Only elephants can move that silently and they are not around. There is also a leopard in that area, but they tend to make some throat noises.
This is one of those occasions when something that looks not particularly interesting turns out to make a really interesting photo, well done Louis.
Louis: Thank you Brian - I always say that most photographers have an eye for opportunities and observe their surroundings better than non-photographers. Some have a better eye than others smile
Wonderful landscape!
Louis: Thank you Tom
it's pointing to a wonderful landscape in the distance Louis...
very well framed with the creek....petersmile
Louis: Like it is saying - go hike there, it will be interesting - which I have done at another opportunity. Thank you peter.

Fabulous point of view and a great title. I love these hills and the whole view.
You live in a wonderful country... the nature is wonderful.
Louis: Indeed, we have. This general area is a place I visit at least once a year. Thank you, Astrid.
a pointing tree...
Louis: That is the point, Larry smile
