Brilliant! Wow, great shot!

Graham Hobbs on May 9, 2008

Thanks Tom and Ossewa - sometimes it's worth getting up at 4 in the morning - in fact I've seldom regretted it, photographically speaking - but that doesn't make it any easier the next time. ;0 Graham

Graham, i give this picture a golden star and "best of" !!! This is a perfect picture of that rock. I was there in 1999 but i was still in bed at 4 am... Great job and many thanks for sharing.

Greetings, Jacques

Graham Hobbs on May 14, 2008

Thanks so much Jacques - I was lucky enough to live in Graaff-Reinet for a year, but I still missed some shots - there are times when you look down on a sea of white cloud from the valley with the tops of the koppies standing out like islands - I saw it only once and only had my 400mm lens with me (I was on my way home from taking wildlife at sunrise). By the time I got back, the cloud was tattered and melting away ... oh well!

A spectacular composition Graham, beautiful light and shadow, bravo!


Graham Hobbs on June 1, 2008

Thanks Alan - they say 'never chase the light', and for once I was in position with my camera on its tripod waiting for the sun to rise -hey, I miss the sun - we haven't seen it in Dorset for weeks!
