Lens-Artist-PC-63-Magic-of-Photography

 

~~~~~

I’m late this week because I have been

contemplating how to approach this challenge.


I was photographing the acrobatics

of this Red Weaver in Botswana, when…

…it suddenly dropped away.

I managed to captured this image

before it disappeared.

These two shots were taken only seconds apart

with different camera settings.

 

 

Changing the shutter speed to 1/200

and the aperture to f 8.0

produces a gloomier morning sky and

accentuates the sun’s rays.

And the results may be seen within seconds.

That is what I deem to be

the magic of modern photography.

African lines this week.

It was truly fascinating to see these giants

at such a close distance.

Their skin, while smooth, is like…

…an ancient…

…eroded landscape.

Thirsty impalas.

 

Our first images of African wild life.

Late afternoon and like all animals

they were out for some fun.

The following year we were locked out.

Probably a good idea in hindsight because the horn

would go right through before they thought of stopping.

Airborne and still looking good.

It is only 103 days before…

…we are unwrapping Christmas gifts,

some of which could be books.

These days I tend to listen to, or read, digital books

in preference to paper books.

However every now and again…

…I like to turn my images into a paper version

for the coffee table.

Along Victoria’s South West Coastline

stand the Twelve Apostles.

Made from soft limestone these cliff faces…

clearly show each layer of the stone…

 

 

…as it was formed.

A view of features of some of

the National Parks visited

during the past few years.

Denali National Park, Alaska.

After spending eight hours in a cramped bus

we finally managed some clear captures

on our way to Fairbanks the next day

of a clear, though distant, Mt Denali.

Our first sighting of a lion pride in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa

Our first and only leopard sighting in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa

Our first evening and sunset in

Chobe National Park, Botswana.

This sun was setting on Namibia,

just across the Chobe River.

We never can see another country

while standing in Australia.

Even the northern tip of Cape York is 150km

from New Guinea’s southern coast and there is

no place on Cape York high enough

to see New Guinea.

Much closer to home is the

Port Campbell National Park.

The home of the Twelve Apostles

and many other places well worth visiting.

I just drooled when I saw today’s Word of the Day.

Followers will know…

…that I am not short of…

 

…elephant photos.

Swimming elephants.

 

 

Elephants wandering past our accommodation.

Who knows how many passed by during the night.

 

 

Thirsty elephants on

The Okavango Delta.
