Hi everyone, another quick pop-in to say hello, and a post of two shots. I'm at last
beginning to see the importance of using good light to produce good shots.

both excellent, Jake, but that first one is a wall-hanger for sure...

one of these days, i've promised myself i'll make it to take a tour of Kruger National Park, but till i can take my own, photos like these will have to suffice!

The reflection on the first one is just great, although the second one when you look at it has amazing color and contrast.
