Please view this image on my website where it will display against a dark background at it's intended resolution and sharpness.

Many years in search of properly green indigenous forests in my home country finally payed off this year when I found these forests in the Magoebaskloof area. Even upon being in the right area, it took lots of exploration to get to the few rare spots with lush undergrowth. After returning home I spent two weeks in bed battling malaria and tick fever. The effort that went into these shots has just made the location so much more special to me.

Well done, buddy! Ek het jare terug die Magoebaskloof 3-dag roete gestap... Onthou nou hoe mooi dit is daar. Het nie geweet daar's malaria nie! :eyepopping: Het wel al my deel se bosluiskoors gehad.

Maar pragtige foto. Hoop jy sit iewers 'n tutorial op oor hoe om met min lig te skiet - ek kry dit glad nie reg nie.
