Not bad Ping some nice shots especially the last photo. So did you use your old mik & druk?

I have been told you can find them just over the mountain from Oudtshoorn; just never looked properly, but something to think about.

Just the kit lens together with my 450D this time i constructed a difuser out of some cardboard and some aluminium foil for my flash to soften the light a bit.

@ armata That's interesting Tony would not have thought they occur there perhaps get Rian to walk that mountain.

Technically harmless. Very slight effects but seriously nothing to worry about.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
