I know this is a "stupid" question for most of you - but how do I upload an image ? Ive tried to copy/paste etc etc but seems like my knowledge is a bit impaired in achieving success :wall:

Thanks Karin - much appreciated

Just a question to the web developers / moderators - why don't you initiate a more user friendly system ? Also to have your pics floating around in cyberspace (otherwise you cannot upload) makes us more vulnerable re pirating of our images ? I've posted pictures on numerous other websites and all of them are easy and much more user friendly.

jan.dup,

SANParks PR is currently busy looking at revamping the forums, which includes the posting of photos via an attachment instead of via a hosting site such as Photo Bucket etc. I think this will result in a more user friendly environment.

Hi Jan,

How lazy they can be... 8) :lol:
We saw them at roadworks near the second dune crossing being even more lazy. Have to search for some pictures of two very, very lazy brothers but please be patient because we experience a bit of hectic times over here after 6 weeks of staying in SA.... :(

Thanks for sharing the lovely shot!

Best regards,

Rob

(Maybe back to SA next October/ November..... :pray: :)

Hey guys,

I know this is random but a while ago somewhere on this forum, someone posted a picture of 2 of the most beautiful, black maned boys I have ever seen and if I can remember correctly they called them the Polentswa brothers. It was a frontal shot of them walking towards the camera.

Does anyone have any idea what I am on about :wall: :wall:

That image is imprinted in my memory and I'd love to see it again.

Thanks alot
