Two shots of a stream running close to whereI live. The colour shot was taken from underneath a bridge-I had to crop it quite a bit to loose the bridge structure which didn't really work as a frame, as I'd originally intended.

Steve, I really like that second shot. Seems a nice little idyllic place. South Africa does seem a very beautiful place. How cautious does one need to be regarding, poisoness snakes etc? Or is it pretty much Ok to walk the countryside freely?

Regards,

Syd

No problem at all Syd - snakesare afraid of human intrudersand will generally slip away well before you see them. To get bitten you've really got to stand on one or make it feel threatened - you are more at riskfrom small ticks (tick bite fever). The bi-peds can bea different story on the odd occassion though:G

Yup -nothing a .44 Desert Eagle won't sort out. You know where to stay if you do come over.

I really like the second photo. The first one does not have enough tonal variety to work in b&w. It's a lovely location. I'm looking forward to seeing more photos from this area.

Steve,

How's the fishing there? I prefer the second picture, and Ladyhawk is right, I think the B&W doesn't quite do it.

I'm afraid not very good in this particular river LT. I'm into fly fishingbut you have to get out of town for that - great fishing a few hours out of Jo'burg. Trout &yellowfish mostly.
