Rob.. I really like the way you have handled the background in this one! well done. Some increased contrast of the trees in the FG might really make it pop!?

Baie goed (I can't speak Dutch but my Afrikaans is close enough) - I can see the fog lifting !!

Nou kan jy 'n reen prentjie maak ? Dis al wat ons sien - reen, reen en meer reen !!

amazing Zuid Afrikaans sounds so old Hollands,i've heard some S.African comunities are more Dutch than the Dutch them selfes
