My deviantART Story
Hello Deviantart!!
EDIT: For the 14th birthday of dA, there is the project through which everyone can gain a badge if he sums up his story on dA. Since I have been doing this recently, I am just going to add some new things that happened and shaped my dA-life since then :) Enjoy...
When I opened my Message-Center this morning, I got a notice telling me, that today it is exactly 6 month since I joined deviant art. Of course this is my first anniversary I am celebrating. So I am going to do a little roundup with what has been moving me here on da in this time.
Thank you all for your constant support, your care and the incredible response I got within this time! I don't think there would be a similar platform anywhere on the net :D
I think the first couple of deviants that really impressed me where those:

Birthday, funeral and life
Hello to everyone who drops by my photography page. I'm :iconthe-vampire-danchan: and I made this account for all my photography.
I'd like to thank everyone who gives me a watch or a fave. I no longer have the time to thank each one of you individually but I appreciate every fave I get. I hope you all understand, thank you for your ongoing support :aww:
So thank you for taking the time to look and I hope you like them ^-^
Hello everyone! It's been a while again sinc eI've made an update here and a lot of things have happened since then. As some of you know I went ot Bali for a week at the beginning of Jumne. I didn't have high expectations as it was a place I was never interested in visiting. But my cousin Steph was having her 30th over there so I went. Let me tell you it was beautiful and not what I had expected. My cousin Paul that I had travelled with was telling me horror stories so I got scared but it was fine. We stayed in an area just a little bit away from Kuta which is the tou

Oregon strawberries, friends and a feature
   OM NOM NOM NOM! I have Oregon strawberries and I'm going to eat all of them....and then I'm going to regret it..but it's going to be worth it... They are 2345345334 TIMES more delicious than California strawberries. I don't think I got the super amazing good ones this time. The are fucking huge and they're not supposed to be this big. They're supposed to be small, about 2x the size of a raspberry is a good size, and they are amazingly sweet. These are still really good though. I also got some bomb raspberries that I know are going to go moldy tomorrow because they always do! I soaked them in some water with a bit of vinegar that is supposed to keep them a bit fresher while still retaining their flavor.
I'm so glad I'm not allergic to strawberries... My parents thought I was when I was a baby because I broke out in a rash everywhere after eating some.
Soo....kind of an open ended question/rant for me.
But, when your friends are getting married, and they don't invite you...d

Morkel Erasmus
Artist | Professional | Photography
South Africa
I have been fascinated with eye-catching and breath-taking photos of the natural world for as long as I can remember. I don't know why it took me so long to pick up my first DSLR camera, but when I did, it all just clicked for me (pun intended). Join me as I share my various experiences in and around the Southern African landscape and wilderness with you...

All my photos portray truly wild animals. No Game Park or Zoo images to be found here.

Current Residence: South Africa
Favourite photographer: Nick Brandt, Marsel van Oosten, Vincent Munier, Arthur Morris, Beverly Joubert
Hey everyone! Every year I take stock of my photographic journey and this year I took a bit of a different approach. Early in 2014 I resolved to use my wide angle lens more often when I photograph wildlife. No drones, no remote control buggies, no fancy selfie-sticks, just good old cam-to-the-eye photography with a wider perspective. I'd love to know what you think - check it out:
10 out of 100 - my reflection on 2014

Thanks a million for following along on my journey!
