Hi All,

Just back from a long trip at sea,when I had a look today on TN I found out that it is already 4 years ago that I posted my first picture,I have learned a lot overhere and I think I can say that my pictures have improved since I joined this site,although people come and go in my opinion it stays a great site.

During my trip at sea have been in many countries,but the (nature) photo opportunities were not that many (but I have pictured some lost and tired birds which used the vessel as resting point and travelled some time with us).

Fortunately we have booked a trip to kruger again where we will go in the beginning of January,so hope to show new pictures from Southern Africa soon.

This Arctic fox I photographed last year on our svalbard trip,it has been made handheld from a moving zodiac an has been cropped a bit,hope you like it and thanks for your time.

Hallo Paul,
Van harte gefeliciteerd. Ongeveer een jaar langer dan ik deel uitmaak van deze familie. Wat goed om weer een foto van je te zien. En wat voor een! Prachtige foto van deze vos in schitterend gecamoufleerde kleuren. Uitstekende scherpte en details in een mooie compositie.
Hoop ook nog wat van je vogels te zien.

Gefeliciteerd met je 4e verjaardag en wat een plaatje om dit te vieren.

Prachtige compo, perfect scherp en goed belicht

Hoi Paul,
Ik zie dat ik een paar dagen te laat ben. Maar nog van harte met alweer je vierde jaar op TN.
Dit is echt een prachtige foto met zo mooi detail in de vos en in de sneeuw. Ik ben echt onder de indruk dat je zo'n pefecte opname hebt weten te maken vanaf een klein rubber bootje.
