My current fav pic, taken in the Kgalagadi:

This one, or one very similar to it, can't remember, is at the moment in a shop being framed. I had it enlarged to 50x75 centimeters, and I think that with a passepartout and frame around it will look very good. 8)

Hi Louper. Try this. If you get stuck PM a Mod and they'll help. I'd try to help myself but I'm not up to speed on how to do it to the new rules standard yet.

And a little bird whispered in my ear that this photo won a prize somewhere too, didn't it Bertie?

Love all the pics here too.
