This was a photo literally taken from the back of a guide vehicle while we were driving. I have no idea how it is not a blur....but I couldn't yell stop fast enough so a snapshot was in order!

Excellent pics on this thread. :thumbs_up:
In 2009 during my first visit to Kruger I got so hooked on Lake Panic and the first thing the one morning in May, I went to Lake Panic and got this one of sun rising over the lake. A magnificent sight with hippos below the hide doing their thing and mist rising from the water:

Then in Sep'10 I got this sunset from Laer Sabie:

Hi everyone, I have two shots that I'm really proud of, I am an amateur photographer so they dont compare to some of yours, but I like them,

but they were taken in pilanesberg with a sony a290 using a 75-300mm lens, so if they are not allowed to be here you can remove them. and it seems some of the quality went when I resized them, but enjoy :mrgreen:

One slightly clearer Mattib, but what makes the Jawbone so interesting, it was only visible at a certain angle of the sun at sunset. :thumbs_up:
