Seen at Morningstar

Unread post by Irene McC » Thu Apr 22, 2010 11:26 am

I'm opening a new thread since I can't find a specific one for Morningstar, which seems to be clustered with Blouberg and it all gets rather busy; hope this is OK?

Lovely shots Irene!
That shallow-depth-of-field photo is quite something (1.4? 2.8?).

The Bosbok's powerhouse - reminds me of the Beatles song Penny Lane
