A room with a view!!!
Happy travels….no matter where life takes you.
Kan Walk Will Travel – Joy Is ….(Wk 20)
Oh, Madhu, that is an incredible view!!!
It was magical Naomi 🙂
such an amazing view! would love to visit this place
Hope you do. This is from our camp in Central Serengeti – the Lemala Ewanjan.
That was brilliantly photographed.
Thanks Ian. We didn’t want to scare them off by stepping out or taking close ups.
I guess wilderness was once upon a time… now the wild animals are getting more and more used to see bipeds running on four wheels armed with cameras 🙂
Some 30 yrs. ago I had the fortune to have a walking safari for a couple day in the Namibian Etosha Park… the emotion still in my heart!
Have a great day hugs :-)c
They obviously do not associate the vehicles or camps with bad experiences Claudine. A great day to you too😊
Indeed a room with a view, an inspiring view… 🙂
Truly! Thanks Drake😊
What a wonderful window view – a zebra so close. I wonder what EM Forster would’ve made of it? My joy at the moment is my senior grandchildren (their litheness and thoughtfulness and curiosity) and their parents (my son with whom I connect out of my professional past and his present; and his partner who is very clever with animals and has an amazing collection of animal skulls.)
Grandchildren are my eternal source of joy as well Meg. Wish they weren’t in such a hurry to grow up 🙂
…and What a View!
Priceless isn’t it AnnChristine? 🙂
Something like that! 🙂
Exactly! I agree with that! 🙂
Ah, and what a view this is!!! 🙂
Priceless Marina 🙂
Oh, that’s fabulous.
You had captured the moment with its life… the desk and the zebra is a stark contrast, though. Nice capture!
Fantastic; I’m so envious
Ha ha ha ha ha! A room with a view, indeed, Madhu—and WHAT a view! 🙂
Fantastic and just think how much more dangerous the view could have been!
Our guide claims he saw a leopard beside the water tank near the staff tents! That might have tempered the joy a bit I think Gilly 🙂
Wow, that’s a view you don’t see every day. 🙂 That’s a great memory to have.
I expect you don’t! 😀
It’s a dream room, getting such a amazing view of the nature and it’s world…with such fabulous reading table…ideas and thoughts can just flow…writers sitting there can keep on churning the beauties of life and living…imagination can be on fire and inspiration needn’t require any support…
Fabulous view, Madhu. 🙂
It really was special Sylvia 🙂
Now THAT is “a view”. Lovely, Madhu! A joy to be sure.
Its spoiled us for any other ‘room with a view’ Tahira 🙂
That view makes you feel you are absolutely in the wild.
So inspiring, I could not get my eyes off your picture. Had it been in Black and white, I could have expected Gregory Peck to sit down at the desk, while rehearsing the Snows of Kilimanjaro 😛 I digress, I know.. thanks for sharing this beautiful picture
Ahh for Gregory Peck at that table!!! Would have multiplied my joy a million fold!! 😀
precision: in his 40s 😉 (although he is aging like a French wine doesn’t he? :P)
now that is some pretty view, but the striped zebra is in the way… (just kidding) – love the exotic view — mmm
Exotic it was Yvette! 😀
🙂 – (love the variety of your work – )
oh, how delightful is this! thank you for sharing your view 🙂
Thank you for reading Kris 🙂
Totally agree! i would love to have such view on my bedroom’s window 🙂
I would too Indah, but shall have to settle for occasional glimpses of feathered friends outside my kitchen window sadly 🙂
OMG! Did you sleep in this room? How wonderfully lucky 🙂
These weren’t resident zebra, but yes, we were indeed ‘wonderfully lucky’ Paula 🙂
Now that is what an office should look like 🙂 Brilliant shot ~ and space.
Stuff of dreams Randall…..one would never be at a loss for inspiration 🙂
Thanks Paritosh 🙂
Agree with you 🙂 That room is sheer joy Madhu!
Wow! Both to the handsome desk and the gorgeous view of the zebra. 😉
Our reaction went somewhat along the same lines Judy! 🙂
You always seem to find the view regardless of where you are!
Kathryn, even I could not have conjured up those beauties 🙂
Oh my, it really doesn’t get much more joyful than that, does it Madhu?! Wonderful capture.
No it doesn’t! Belated thanks Tina! 🙂
To lift your eyes from the desk and see a zebra standing outside!
A more than magical moment.
I was beside myself with glee Judith! 🙂
A hard to believe moment you’ve captured in your photo, Madhu. These are the things we wish would happen so we can capture them. You have had a significantly incredible moment. Nature giving you a gift. SUPER WELL DONE !!! 😄
In Africa nature is overly benevolent at every turn! Thank you Isadora 🙂
Oh what a view and how inspiring. Thanks Madhu
Thank YOU Dilip.

Wow… I really really wish, I were in that room with a shelf full of books and a hot cup of tea on call 🙂
I almost had to be dragged away myself Sreejith! 🙂
Beautiful and so original 🙂 Enjoy! Bye. Kamila
Thank you Kamila 🙂
Now that’s some view!
