Botswana & Namibia: Non-Portraits Challenge finished on Thursday, 03 Apr 2014 As we move (roughly) south thru Africa, this challenge will cover only the countries of Botswana and Namibia. These countries have some of the best game parks on earth, so I'm sure we'll be seeing some amazing animal photos. Of course, you can surprise us with something different...sand dunes, the waters of the Delta, or anything else that inspires you. I am unsure about how many people have been to these countries, so I don't think we'll hit the 35-entry maximum. If we do, then I'll probably add more spaces, so everyone who wants can enter. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.
Winner: Valve Amplifier

At the end of submission phase, please open your profile and note your challenge statistics, then read Additional rules.
