Hi Motaz,

What a gigantic Termite Mound.
Look like a human head complete with hair with swollen scalp.

Hello Motaz,
I couldn't believe this is a termite mount! Agree with Tabib: it looks almost like a statue :-) Very interesting, it realy mustbe enormeous!
One critique: the picture has a tilt that is realy obvious if you look at the horizont.

Ciao Motaz,
ci presenti un'immagine veramente particolare e non comune di questo gigantesco termitaio.
In WORKSHOP ho solo eliminato l'inclinazione dell'orizzonte.
