A walk in the forest 1

a (1)

Two weekends ago plus I took my Canon G3X for a walk in Palmiet Nature Reserve, a venue suggested by “Snake Man” Nick Evans (PS: contact him to safely find & remove snakes).

Perhaps not the best camera kit to take into a low-light forest but I also need to up my “walk briskly in forest, show extreme stealth, focus correctly, don’t blame camera equipment skills”.

As hard as I tried I could not get any of the close-up creature shots that many others often display.

But it was a lovely walk, I got lost and then found (I had to climb a fence to get out of the reserve), and at least have a few shots (some not so well-focused) of my 5 km outing (that felt like a 20 km run).

If you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen!

Thank you Joop for an awesome evening and yet another top quality SA steak: pan-fried pepper steak medium-rare with chips and a bottle of Stellenbosch Vineyards Zonnebloem.

Focus on us

“People who produce exceptional work consistently and lead their games understand that we grow by having the guts to go to the jagged edges of our highest limits on a regular basis. And by so doing, those limits expand.
Life gives you what you give it. Stand for world-class in this age of too much average and you’re pretty much guaranteed an epic journey. Doesn’t mean it will be easy. [The Great Ones have all suffered the most; the fire purified and developed their heroic instincts]. But I promise you: it will be worth it.
To walk with the icons, devote yourself to the building of a meaningful legacy. One that inspires you to bring out the fullness of your natural genius, one that causes you to know powers in you that you didn’t know you had. And one that, at the end of your life, allows you to look back on the way you have conducted yourself and say…
“…I had times in the sun. I had seasons in the rain. I reached for my best. I raised others with me. And now, in a state of vast peace, I leave our world better than I found it.”
You’re meant to make a difference. This is your time. Now is your moment. Begin.” ~ Robin Sharma

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
