This is my favourite picture, it was taken on day 2 of our recent kruger visit, my first trip with an DSLR camera. Just out the gate at Letaba having left as soon as the gate opened. Amazing the difference lighting makes, the same scene an hour later would have been very plain.

Love the all the photos...but the landscape with a variety of light are the ones i like the best and seem to make me long to go back more than others....I think it is the peacefullness they seem to convey...unfortuanatly my landscape pics arent upto much.

Here are my favourite bird pick ( a bit predictable) and my favourite action pic from the hide at mapungwabe.

Hope you like

We recently had a wonderful month in Kruger and Mapungubwe after a gap of more than ten years.We saw and photographed a lot of lions and a couple of leopards but these gentle pics are my favourites.
