According to me you can't open a new account with tinypic anymore..............you can only upload into the "big bucket". If you registered before the takeover you can still use your account ( sometimes with a lot of patience ).

You can create a new account with photobucket however or download picasa and use their web uploads.

The waterhole at Holombacht to which I refer so much in my Night drive sightings, this is situated close to the bridge,when driving out from the restcamp there is a water tank and solar panel on the left side and the waterhole is not visible unless there is animals around.

We were just away from the water hole and this red hartebees bull came and have a drink.
