It is different in black and white Jan. To me this image accentuates the drought, but it is just me. :wink:

Jan, what an amazing series of special LP moments you have shared or continue to share. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Apologies for being 'out of action' for a while as life sometimes requires one to focus on other priorities. To be honest, I have not lifted a camera since July till a few days ago not to miss out on the rainbow with Table Mountain shot.

If all goes well, we might be visiting Kruger, and in particular LP, in winter next year, hence cannot wit to enjoy that sunrise moments which looks as if LP is flooded with Fanta Orange :lol: :lol: :lol:

After a few weeks in France I had to catch up a lot on the forums but it is very rewarding to do so (especially now while we enjoy the most lovely weather in Holland at the moment. Sitting outside at 11pm and it is still 24 degrees Celcius )
What a wonderful series of LP sightings, thanks a lot for sharing them with us :gflower: :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:
