A back road near Geelong

with a beautiful view.


Not a Botswana back road,

however with wandering livestock,

it could be a back road

We travelled over this road for several hours

before reaching the salt lake.


Greater Kruger National Park…

…provided a variety of tracks/roads

and many wandering wildlife.


This Kruger National Park road

may pass for a back road,

but it isn’t and that maybe that is

why the hyenas used it.

side by side

(of two or more people or things) close together

and facing the same way.




We ain’t got a barrel of money…


…maybe we’re ragged and funny…

…but we’ll travel the road…


…sharin’ our load, side by side.

Bass Strait.

to capture the ‘Breakfast’ shot.

a shoot first ask question later basis, the

Khama Rhino Sanctuary, is home…

but many other species of wildlife including

The Burj Khalifa is the largest subject

I have ever photographed.

Although a large elephant it barely makes

the medium category of my photos.

My smallest subject…a dung beetle.


Small, medium and large.

Mum was probably happy to see her offspring…

…find something else to do.

It was our unexpected game drive

which gave her a break…

…and resulted in…

…these images of her…

…of six week old lion cubs.
