Chotje’s Vision(Eyes of the Aloe)
Did you watch a gibbous moon
entangled in those starfish eyes
of wise old thorny Kokerboom
beneath Namakwa’s starry skies?
Did you touch his horny hide
and ask him pardon for your rude
request that he in you confide
his thoughts and secrets un-eschewed?
Did he take you far away
beyond the feeble lunar glow
into his gleaming milky way
to places only Kokers know?
Where spirits fly on angel wings
for starfish eyes can see all things.

Nevertheless, here are a few recent pretty images (don't worry, I won't show you any more baby pictures).

|The moon is watching - Canon 40D, 70-200 f4 IS, 0.3sec, f/22 ISO 100|
On 15 March I joined a bunch of photographers to photograph the moonrise over Theewaterskloof Dam. The Helderberg Photographic Society does this thing about once a year, and this time Tafelberg Photographic Society wanted in on the act; it was fun shooting with a bunch of new faces.

I was a bit luckier last time, when my Quiver Trees by Night 3 was shortlisted, and Quiver Trees by Night 2 was commended. Still, I'm very happy with the result, especially as 2013 really wasn't a good year for me, and this was one of very few decent images that I produced.

|Boulders and Clouds - Canon 40D, Canon 17-55mm, 1/60, f/5.6, ISO 100|
Here is just a quick post to mention that I'm off on a road trip tomorrow morning that will take us to the Addo Elephant Park, the Drakensberg and Ithala Game Reserve. I'm really looking forward to this, and will hopefully get some nice landscape and wildlife shots.
I will probably have sporadic internet access in the next three weeks, so I cannot promise that I will be able to process print orders in time for Christmas. I will be back on 5 January, however.
