Intro: I have been a member of Treknature since 4th October 2004. Being part of this International 'family' has been of enormous benefit in moving forward in my development as an amateur photographer. My first digital camera was a Canon Powershot A60. Easy to use and produced good shots. I moved on to a Konica Minolta dImage Z2. This opened up new horizons with the 10x optical zoom. All of a sudden I was seeing the entire world through different eyes. My wonderful husband surprised me with a Canon EOS 10D on the 8th December 2004. Now, this was getting serious. A whole new adventure was heading my way. The learning curve was and still is steep. There is no light at the top yet, but the journey is a wonderful education. There are failures and successes, but always fun.

There are so many on this site that I would like to thank who have helped me progress and gain confidence in my hobby. I don't wish to name them in case I forget one or two and offend them, but I am sure you know who you are.

Some have strayed from the site but hopefully will pop back from time to time:

Callie de Wet

Japie Venter

Willie Miles

To all new members:

You have become part of a wonderful 'family' who are here to help. Sometimes the critiques may appear harsh, but without being given true advice your photography will not improve. Ultimately this site and it's dedicated members will help you to become a better photographer, I know as I speak from experience.

To all who give so much to this site THANK YOU!
