Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Shadows

~~~~~

Shadows from Geelong and Botswana.

A few years ago I stopped to take photos of this church

not realising it was covered by

the shadow from a nearby tree.

Unfortunately the tree is no longer.

I think the church survives.

 

Over in Botswana’s Okavango Delta

both elephants and trees…

…cast long shadows…

…in the late afternoon sun.

WeeklyPrompts-Photo-Best-Buy

 

 

One of our best buys

from past years is…

this drawing of a pair of 6 week old lion cubs

we sighted the last evening we spent in Africa.

We had seen the work of

Warren Dale Carey while in South Africa.

Upon arriving home we contacted him,

sent a photo and this is the result.

 

 

 

The following year an image similar to this

was also turned into a work of art,

Warren Dale Carey

both of which now adorn our living room wall.

We felt these were better souvenirs than

many of the regular souvenirs

available at markets and airports.

Birds from Africa and Australia.

Perhaps a Brown Hooded Kingfisher

from South Africa.

This could be a long tailed widow bird from South Africa.

From all over this week.

Not sure if this is a ‘tender moment’ or

a power play in the

Chobe National Park,

Botswana.

I choose to believe it is the former.

An early morning shadow from the

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and

Lekhubu Island’s…

flighty Kalahari Scrub Robin

At the other end of the day we begin our flight over

the Okavango Delta

at the Maun Airport.

In late afternoon both elephants and trees

cast long shadows.

 

 

Finally, a home grown shadow.

Possibly the first time I photographed a shadow. 

Sadly the tree is no longer. 

I thought the church had disappeared also.

However, Google of February 2018 says differently. 

Twelve months is a long time though.

Most of us agreed that this was what

we thought of when talking of

African landscapes. 

Still in the north-eastern area

of the Kalahari, on our way

to Maun, Botswana.
