Congratulations Morkel777!

Unread postby Bushbuddies » Sat Jan 26, 2013 9:32 am

So I got my latest edition of Weg! February 2013 (English version = Go!), and as I eagerly page through my favourite magazine I realise - "wait a minute - I've seen this pic before...". I turn back a page or two and yes, I know this guy! The featured photographer in the February edition of Weg! is none other than Morkel Erasmus - our forum's own Morkel777. Congratulations Morkel! Just made me realise how lucky we are that you share all your great photographs with us all the time!

PictureS actually, Sheenaugh-Lee. They actually feature a specific photographer's portfolio every month. These are usually professional photographers. Morkel's portfolio is featured this month - even though he is not a professional photographer... 8)

wow!! That is quite an achievement given the fact that he isn't a professional photographer very very impressive maybe he should think of a change in careers if he's doing this well :)
