Annemarie says:

It was July 2020. Kruger has just opened for day visitors, after severe Lockdown. We just had to go…

 

It was extremely dry, with the strongest gusts of winds, we have ever experienced in Kruger. 

Most waterholes were completely dry!

We came upon this herd of elephants, searching for a last drop of water at the waterhole. They desperately needed water…

The wind was so strong, it was rocking our vehicle!

After drinking vigorously, the elephants turned to disappear into the bushes where they came from, to escape the dusty, stormy winds… 

It was amazing to see how the wind was “playing” with their strong ears, like feathers in the wind…

I waited for the right moment, when all ears were flapped forward by the wind!

 

Our 1st runner-up is Tania CHOLWICH from AFO Photography Club –  The Chase Is On

HOW DOES THIS COMPETITION WORK?

Members of PSSA only are invited to personally enter any one image per month into this competition, and submit it via Photovault at www.photovaultonline.com.  If you are not a member of PSSA, you can unfortunately not enter this competition.

If your image has won the Senior or Junior club competition at your club during the month, it will be entered in either of those two competitions for the month.  PLEASE do not enter it into the Web site competition as well for obvious reasons.  Remember, it is the same judges that judge all three competitions for a particular month and having the same image in two competitions, Senior or Junior and the Web site competition will disadvantage the image. If your image does not win in the Senior or Junior Club Competition and you would like to enter it into the Web site competition, you can do so as long as it is a month or so later.

The winning image will be displayed on the home page of our Website for the duration of the month. 

Instructions on how to upload your entry onto Photovault can be downloaded here  doc

Frequently we do require high resolutions of these images as PSSA use them for Print Exhibitions to promote PSSA as well as showcasing the work being done around the country.

At the end of the PSSA calendar year (30 June of each year) the Website Competition Winning Image of the Year is selected.
