Hey everyone! Wishing all the forumites a wonderful 2012 filled with awesome sigthings in the magnificent cluster of South African National Parks. :lol: :popcorn:

Every year I compile a selection of my favourite images from my travels around Southern Africa on my blog. This year is no exception, and it's a veritable "Top 20", comprising many images taken in South African National Parks.

Have a look HERE, would love to have your thoughts!

Cheers and have a great day...

Morkel

The photo of the Zebra was an awesome one, the lighting and the colour effects really pleasing to the eyes. So it is going to be the best one for me according to the 2011 best image.

Morkel,

needless to say that all of your pictures are simply breathtaking also the one your presented here and I choose my favourites, only one out of each category:

The Sunset Rocks is amazing simply because you pressed the button on the right time - Sometimes you need also a little bit of luck :thumbs_up:

The spoonbill Spat is also very impressive with action in the picture and stunning light :clap: :clap: :clap:

Although I am personally not a great fan of black and white photography - for me it simply comes better in portraits of people - I have choosen the ellie :dance: :dance: :dance:

You have got a lot of talent :clap: :clap: :clap:

Pragtige fotos. Het al probeer met die hemel af te neem, maar dit werk nie so lekker uit nie.

Hi MPL :)


As this is an international forum, could you translate the post for the non-afrikaans speaking people? Thank you :)
