Agree with you, Jan :dance:

Those hippos are just classic at Sunset - always great to photograph them with lovely poses. :thumbs_up:

Excellent Diderick pic. :clap:

I managed to get the little one on a wet day - just hope to be successful with data recovery and will then share. :|

Thank you for sharing your Sunset dam moments - great pics. :clap:

This past trip to Kruger I stayed at Lower Sabie, first time in many many years.
Spent hours at Sunset Dam. IMO one of the best dams close to the road that is good for photography.

Wild@Heart, a really excellent panoramic view of the Sunset Dam. :clap: :clap: :clap:

It is interesting to note that on 30 Dec'13, after the rains, the cement 'thing' in the dam was covered with water due to risen water levels. :D
