Excellent pics on this thread. :thumbs_up:
In 2009 during my first visit to Kruger I got so hooked on Lake Panic and the first thing the one morning in May, I went to Lake Panic and got this one of sun rising over the lake. A magnificent sight with hippos below the hide doing their thing and mist rising from the water:

Then in Sep'10 I got this sunset from Laer Sabie:

Hi everyone, I have two shots that I'm really proud of, I am an amateur photographer so they dont compare to some of yours, but I like them,

but they were taken in pilanesberg with a sony a290 using a 75-300mm lens, so if they are not allowed to be here you can remove them. and it seems some of the quality went when I resized them, but enjoy :mrgreen:

One slightly clearer Mattib, but what makes the Jawbone so interesting, it was only visible at a certain angle of the sun at sunset. :thumbs_up:

Photo Themes - a suggestion

Unread postby Caracal » Sun Jan 08, 2012 12:56 pm

Hi Mods

There are many "photo themes" in the two photographic categories. Sometimes they end up quite far down the line and they get forgotten about. Is it possible to lump all of them together in another category???? That way they would be more noticeable and probably be added to more often.
Just a thought.... :D
Thx
Caracal.

I agree Caracal. There is so much talent on the forum and it seems a pity that some wonderful images get lost.
