Hello Carl and welcome to TrekNature!
I love your Egyptian goose and the way he is shaking off excess water. The colors are nice and like that you included some plants at the bottom of the image.
Thanks for sharing.

Hello Carl,
Welcome at TN. Your first image here is above average and I like the activity and the contre jour effect. Hope you will have a very pleasant journey here. Best wishes.

PS: Your sister is an accomplished photographer here and it looks like you have the same knack for it. Geniet en steur jou nie aan die arrogansie van een of twee hier nie - dit is werklik 'n aangename gemeenskap.

Hallo Carl en baie welkom by Trek Nature. Vra maar vir jou sussie wie ek is en sy sal jou vertel, hoe sy vir Loot en Anna Eksteen ken. Ek is baie bly om te sien dat nog 'n Afrikaans sprekende persoon hierdie fotografiese webtuiste toegetree het. Ek hoop jy het 'n heerlike tyd en dat jy alle kritieke goed of sleg wat vir jou gegee word sal neem soos wat dit kom. Wees gewaarsku daar is 'n paar nare wolwe daar buite wat nie sal skroom om jou kamerawerk uitmekaar te trek nie. Hou egter altyd in gedagte dat die eintlike mikpunt van hierdie webtuiste is om te leer van die natuur deur fotografie en dat dit nie 'n fotokompetisie is nie. Ek het spesifiek vir jou hierdie 1ste boodskap in Afrikaans geskryf en sal voortaan my siening van jou fotos in Engels gee.

Ek hou baie van jou foto met die Kolgans in die water. Die water druppels is duidelik vasgevang en vertoon baie mooi in die natuurlike sonlig. Ek is net bly dit is nie ek wat in daardie water is nie, want ek dink dit kan regtig nogal koud wees. Maar nou ja wat weet die voŽls nou eintlik van temperature? Ek dink nie veel nie.

Dankie dat jy die foto met ons gedeel het. Ek kyk uit vir nog. Vriendelike groete.
Anna
