Mapengubwe is all about relections.

I love this theme and I am enjoying all your photos so much :thumbs_up:

I am posting these, not because I think my photos are cool, but because I think Mapengubwe is cool. It is a place of light and shadow, unbelievable contrasts and off course reflections. These were all taken at the hide in winter. I was so sorry that I had to leave as early as I did, because I wanted to stay and watch the various times of day. Next time I will stay in Limpopo tented camp if I go in winter.

Nice one Katja,

The first two of mine were Digiscoped (holding a camera against a spotting scope). The last one taken in the conventional way.

Spotted Redshank.

This was taken before the cricket evening dinner at Lake Panic. I found it very atmospheric.

I love this thread. Reflections are so atmospheric.

I took this picture at the Skukuza reception area the day after the Skukuza half marathon. I had a bit of a problem kneeling to get the best angle.. and even more of a problem standing up again :wink: but the beauty of the moment was breath taking.
