I should just tell you Jan that I get as much pleasure out of your photos as I do out of anyone's. You probably love the scenes you photograph and have more attachment to them than anyone so keep posting.



Thank's Twaffle, you are probably right, there. I've been to some of the locations many times, and still keep going back!

Every day in Africa is different from the last, and I keep wanting to capture both animals and friends to look at when I get

home. I'm doing so now as I'm at my laptop, as you may have seen on my facebook page.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So don´t stop shaking the bottle, there´s a lot inside.

G.W., that would be good, I'm always using the 'like' button on Facebook, but here I always try to vary the praise.

Not good enough Marc, where's the eland silhouette? Isn't that a sunrise/sunset as well?

Seriously though, beautiful photos …where's your next trip going to be?

Paul, I like it very much. Shows the difference in the light from the sun which has been split by the cloud. Good work.

Wow! Some amazingly beautiful images!

I was on a game drive once and wanted to stop for sunset pictures. The people in the backseat said to each other - "Why do we need to stop? You can take pictures of the sunset at home." Yeah, maybe so. But I have never seen a sunset like these at home.

Here are a couple of my faves
