Last week many come back from Africa.
This year I want some low pictures.
Normally I work from the car,but now I want it lower,so out of the car and hope they will stay.

Takes a lot of patience to get out of the car and get shots like this, but it is always worth it in the end. Fantastic shot Jaap
