We went to the reservoir yesterday to make full use of the sun and to let our son practise his kayaking . He and a friend want to do a three day trip down the Breede river soon Smile
Thanx to all who took the time to vote and comment on my scary images Smile I let my wife and son go first hoping to get a nice action shot should a leopard pounce on them Smile
Have a super Monday and great new week !!

Two super images, Herman. Lovely light on the scene. Much as I like V1 with the 'action', V2 really appeals to me, mainly as I love the way the light is catching the submerged rocks in the foreground. So it's half a vote to each! SmileSmile

Hi, Herman, two cracking images my friend, v2 for me, luv the composition, but for me its the foreground interest with the rocks under the water that makes the image so good compositionally.
Well done.
