ESKOM, the South African electricity provider, is known for its load shedding. Since 1994 when the ANC took over the reigns in South Africa there was hardly any maintenance, replacements of generators, etc. and certainly no vision; just politics and ‘looting’. On local level ESKOM engineers could not even straighten our the poles, etc. Since a few years there is a new management at ESKOM trying to repossess what was stolen and working on updating the present infrastructure including the introduction of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar (instead of coal).
Every year I make a collage of my favourite photos I took during the year. These pictures are not necessarily the ones that have got the most attraction but rather the ones that means the most to me. They represent such huge experiences for me. See also my other website.
That said I am hugely grateful for all of your engagement here on my page. I love my job and I have a burning passion for what i do. Thank you all for making that possible.I have a lot planned for 2021 and I hope it will be full of close encounters, experiences and breathtaking moments. See you all in the field, and happy new year..
May I brag about myself? Of course but I prefer somebody with authority in the photographic world bragging about me. Thank you Lanny from the USA who selects the best photographs published on the Internet.
“Photo by Herman Van Bon (c). An animal done as a perfect portrait, I love the face on this sheep, and how it makes you just want to maybe keep your distance. The detail of the face, and then to vignette the photo, I think, makes it a real class photo. He lives in Napier, Western Cape, South Africa, and has developed an amazing talent in photography. He has his own website, and if you want to see more great photos, you really need to go to his website and check them out: http://hermanvanbon.com” – Lanny Cottrell (https://123photogo.com/)
Wishing all a peaceful Christmas and a Happy 2021.
