@ Jan: that photo speaks to one's soul and asks to stay a bit longer. It captures the beauty and anticipation what the day still is hiding. :clap:

@ Kaapsedraai: perfectly captured, bright, clear and with the reflection in the water makes it stunning. :clap:

Beautiful :cam: photo with heron against the blue background, Jan.
