Pilanesberg National Park - Picture Gallery 2008
Galleries of pictures taken in Pilanesberg National Park the last 6 years
It took me the last 10 months to make galleries of pictures taken, so I haven't touched the last 10 months' pictures.
There are 41 000 pictures, most taken by me. You can pick any random day and see what you could see with me.
They are copyrighted and intellectual property, but are for sale at a very reasonable rate - just mail. Free for educational use.
With the older pics I used a HP 635, then a Canon A70 powershot that just stopped working, and the last just over 2 years a
Canon 350D, with standard, 70-300, 170-500, and 100-400 IS lenses. I just point and shoot on auto....and this is what I get :)

23 Jan 2009, I'm working backwards on this. Should be up shortly...but will do the descriptions later :)
This will differ from the old galleries, and have 5 or more bigger pics of the day - pages around 1 Mb or less.
Some days are missing, as the pics are on other pc's, but I will consolidate shortly....
