the line at which the earth’s surface and the sky appear to meet.

An afternoon whirlwind briefly appeared

on the horizon the afternoon

we are arrived at Lekhubu Island…


…which is located in Sua Pan among

the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

in Botswana.

Next morning the same

North Eastern Kalahari Desert 

horizon produced this sunrise.

Signs from two continents.

Botswana’s Khama Rhino Sanctuary

has this sign displayed inside the camp.

Hard to imagine this sign necessary.

 

 

Visitors to Melbourne will see this sign in

the Bourke Street Mall.

 

Hosier Lane is a mecca for tourists,

photographers and street artists alike.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs

~~~~~

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.
