Internet has been down for a couple of days,the satellite signal had a kind of interference,luckily all has been solved now.,we are again underway to augusta to load our cargo for Algiers after that we will do a trip from augusta to cyprus (larnaca) we are looking out for that (a bit) different voyage.

Here a shot taken on our morning drive in the lower sabie region,the sun was just appearing above the horizon,when I took this picture of this vulture,he was accompagnied by a few more of them in the same tree,I took this picture out of the car window using a beanbag as stabilization,hope you like it.

Hi Paul.
What a nice subject of your picture. I like the identical colour palette of the vulture and dry tree. Very impressive composition, nice pose of the majestic bird and pleasant neutral BG. Sharpness and details of the image are perfect too. My best regards and TFS.

Nice shot good level of detail and interesting colour tones the plain sky back is good tfs rgds Necip.

beautiful-dramatic pic, TFS Ori

Wow Paul,
een indrukwekkende gier. Het valt me op dat zijn kop donkerder is dan de meer noordafrikaanse vormen.
Mooie foto met zacht licht.
Groeten Jacob


A majestic bird captured very well. I like the way it merges with the bark of the tree.

Hallo Paul,
Prachtige bruin-tinten in een perfecte compositie. Het licht doet de rest.
