Near Bolo, on my way to transkei.


My biggest worry in life, is that if I die before my Wife, she will sell my biking gear based on the prices that I told her I had paid for them.

I took this one during a HUGE storm out near Lions River in the Natal midlands. I was standing in the middle of an open field with some very heavy lightning going on around me. I thought I was going to get struck, seeing as I was holding onto my camera which was mounted to a tripod at the time

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

The photos I cropped a tad to fit the canvas size they were printed to. The photo with the "red clouds" was taken with no filters. The second photo with the "dark clouds" was also taken without filters but I added a curves adjustment layer in photoshop to bring out the colour contrasts.


THis one I took here at the office out in the Karkloof of the Natal Midlands. A poor attemmpt at HDR.... HayleysComet.... how the hell are you supposed to do this sort of thing??
