One Word Photo Challenge-Glue

Glue.

Towards the end…

of our first African Safari…

we all agreed… that it was sights like these…

which held Africa’s tourist trade…

in place.

In essence, these sights were the ‘glue’…

for without these sightings to see and photograph…

Africa’s tourist trade would fall dramatically.

Which is why poaching of any description,

or trade in the products of these animals, must cease.

In my opinion and that of others as well.

Week 93

Twilight

On our last night in South Africa were

called out on an unexpected game drive.

 

During the drive word came through of a sighting

of two lion cubs nearby.

We found them.

And after twenty minutes of being the only car on site

and twenty minutes of photographing

these two playful lion cubs…

thank goodness for digital storage…

we decided to head back to camp.

As we did so the sun was well on its way below the horizon

and we arrived back in twilight.

One Word Photo Challenge-Giraffe

~~~~~

Giraffe.

After our first African Safari,

I was telling a then work colleague about…

this giraffe which always waited at, or near, the gate

to our camp looking over the fence.

My colleague used this beautiful face as a reason

for NOT going to visit Africa.

I was shocked!!

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Golden-Hour

~~~~~~

Have opted for Golden Hour photos

at either end of the day.

Only a matter of weeks ago and probably

through our living room window.

 An African setting sun.

However we did not stop to take a sunset photo.

We were photographing the leopard lying on the limb

in the top right hand corner.

Below is a cropped and over brightened

version of that image.This was only taken to give some context to the sighting.

All other photos the leopard is quite visible.

I have often said that I would have gone home happy,

on this, the third day of our Safari.

Then things only got better.
