Fall­ing in love with the view, or a warthog bath


Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - TRAVEL 2013 - TRAVEL WRITER

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Jeremy Galvin of New­lands for his pic­ture of the Ni­a­gara Falls on the Canada-US bor­der.

He says: “This photo of the Cana­dian side of the falls was taken from the ho­tel’s 14th floor ob­ser­va­tion lounge. A kindly lo­cal had ad­vised me that I should use that van­tage point, rather than go up the nearby Sky­tower, which is about R290 a ticket. The rainbow seen through the mists and spray was an added bonus.” Galvin wins a stay for four at Mon­tagu Springs.

The run­ners- up are Juanita Nunes of Plum­stead for her pic­ture of the Eif­fel Tower in Paris and Keith Honey­man of Mead­owridge for his pic­ture of warthogs in Addo.

Nunes spent a beau­ti­ful evening in Paris while wait­ing to board the last cruise on the Seine river. “I was pleas­antly sur­prised with the spec­tac­u­lar show of the light­ing-up of the tower.”

Honey­man re­cently went camping in Addo. “We came across these two shar­ing a bath. It was a hot day, there was lit­tle shade and the cou­ple were en­joy­ing the mud, wa­ter and com­pan­ion­ship just as much as we en­joyed watch­ing them. They were in no hurry and even­tu­ally we left them to their happy ablu­tions.” Com­pe­ti­tion rules: ● All pho­tographs must re­late to travel, and you may en­ter as many times as you like.
