Hi Janek,
I read the reviews of the loop walk to the falls and it seems you have to be prepared to get your feet wet. 6kms -that's too far for us so thanks for the photo. Even with your polarizer the sky is still a bit OE.
Cheers

Hi Julian,
a lovely early morning shot, the leopard seems very relaxed even fora game reserve. Hope to see more shots. We lived in SA for 12 yrs and were back on holiday a few years ago.

Hi,
a well composed shot and a nice green bokeh. It would have been nice if the DoF was slightly greater so that the bug was also in focus,

Interesting result, though I may have been tempted to crop out the over-exposed part of the front droplet

Hi Janek,
great shot, well composed and good choice of shutter speed, enough to freeze the people and the blurred grasses really do catch the wind.

Thanks for sharing all these wonderful views of NZ. We were down at Piha not so long ago in the motorhome but Mrs Jackal can't walk too far these days so we won't be going along to see Keyhole Rock,

Hi Zandra,
that's a more appealing shot with the better lighting but he isn't exactly white, almost green, I presume its from the algae in the river.

Hi Janek,
I like the super sharp silhouette against the lovely sky. There are a lot of people around for that time of day.
I remember playing football up Mangere Mountain many moons ago. I worked round the corner in Neilson St for 30 odd years.

Hi Zandra,
Obviously not a wonderful spring day in sunny England. The photo looks like needs some PP work to give it a boost.
Its a pretty grubby looking swan

They look cuddly but I remember one of the keepers saying "they are bad-tempered little bug*ers"
I like the back-lit ears.

I am surprised the little robin stayed there and the pigeon doesn't seem impressed. Great note as well

Hi Janek,
One of the benefits of lockdown are that there are no tourists around. The people in front are a necessary inclusion to demonstrate the size of the tree. I think Tane Mahuta (the God of the Forest) is the largest and oldest (est'd 1250-2500 years old).
cheers
