Thanks for the kind words Stan. We all miss him a lot. Apart from being my brother he was also my best friend.
To Myburgh’s Family,
I just learned from Gerrit about the tragic event. A few days ago I wrote to Myburgh to tell him how much his photography has influenced my decisions and life. Because of him, I want to stay in Kalahari for months at a time. A few days ago I bought a new lens, the most important in my life, and before I purchased it, I decided that I need to have one just like Myburgh since his pictures are so great. So I went to his pages and checked his equipment. Then, next morning I bought the same. When I retire, I would love to spend months in South Africa with my wife because of pictures we have seen. I told all this to Myburgh a few days ago, but there was no reply. I suspected the worst. It was confirmed this morning.
I feel such sadness! I never met him, but we exchanged emails in which he helped me in my photo decisions. I did hope to meet him one day when we are in South Africa.
Myburgh, I will not see you now, but someday I will meet you. Rest in Peace, my Friend.

My dad was a great painter, so I'm sure it was his.

What a shock it was when, on our way to Kgalagadi, I read in the paper about Myburgh's untimely death.
Our sincere condolences to Tina and the kids and his family.

Myburgh and Tina were on their way to the Kgalagadi The Prado overturned about 30km north of Calvinia. We do not really know what happened yet. Many people are commenting on the gusts of strong wind on that piece of road.
Myburgh was killed instantly, thankfully. Tina has some bumps and bruises and damage to her ankle but she is OK physically.
Deepest sympathy to the family at the death of Myburgh....such a tragic lost of a very talented artist/photographer

Sadly I must inform you that my dear friend Mybs was killed in a car crash yesterday.
My sincere condolences to his wife Tina, their children and his family.
Rest in peace my friend,

Great images! I will be in Kruger at the end of April. That is just a few weeks away and your images on this website have really inspired. Thanks again and keep up the great work.
I hope you don't mind that I posted a link to your website on the Dpreview website. You have used both systems (N/C) very well.
Welcome back Myburgh. Some great work that you have brought back from your Kruger trip. I hope there are some more coming. What was the outcome of your loss on the morning you left?
Very nice photos. I hope that you don't mind that I added some scientific names to the comments. Remove them at will.
Beautiful work! I'll be returning often!
