Some of my favourite closeups, or crops..

Whilst there is more here than

the challenge requires

‘Percy’ still makes a good subject.

Percy again

Probably my best ‘less is more’ photo.

Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

in the background

and very little else.

 

 

Lunch is down there.

Near Barwon Heads last Friday morning, April 26.

Melbourne’s…

Saint Kilda Pier.

Crop some of the distraction and more focus

is on photographer and model,

completing a tertiary photography assignment.

African landscapes

Sundown on our last night in Africa, 2013.

Greater Kruger National Park.

From Lekhubu Island in the

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

North Eastern Kalahari Desert,

Botswana.

 

Kalahari Bash landscapes…

 

…after our overnight camp on Lekhubu Island.

 

 

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.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-The-Great-Outdoors

~~~~~~

The Great Outdoors theme reminded me of…

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans which form part of the

North Eastern Kalahari Desert in Botswana.

 

Driving into the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans on Sua Pan

we camped the night at Lekhubu Island

and watched a beautiful sunset

and sunrise the next morning.

 

The next day we seemed to drive for hours

with only the occasional village to pass by and

a few more Acacia trees to form

the only shelter and shade along the way..

We really felt alone on the planet.

FOWChallenge-Trail

Below is an example of the tracks, trails, if you will,

we followed through the Botswana’s Kalahari Desert.

I’m just glad our guide knew where he was going.

Or is it an area where all tracks lead to the same destination?

I worked in New South Wales many years ago.

We arrived at the property and after a few hundred metres

the road divided, then again and again. 

One of the passengers told me not to worry the tracks

all lead to the same place…our destination. 

And this is what the tracks looked liked.

I distinctly remember saying that I

had a shot of where it was..

after taking this photo.

What’s not there is…

this Kalahari Scrub Robin

at Lekhubu Island in Botswana.

Note the dirt/sand kicked up as it accelerates away.

My emptiness post comes from our travels

in Botswana in 2014.

  I will never forget approaching this site.

 I was absolutely we were approaching a long grey wall

out in the north-eastern reaches of the Kalahari Desert.

Nothing so mysterious, just the water

at Nata Bird Sanctuary.

 

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

What this impala lives on is beyond me.

If these shots don’t epitomise emptiness

I don’t know what does…

However, we both felt that these shots…

 

epitomise our preconceived thoughts of what Africa

would look like.

After sunrise at…

Lekhubu Island in Botswana…


w
e breakfasted and were soon our way…

 

heading north-ish along these super highways

of the Kalahari…

 

 for the Okavango Delta region.

 

 Every now and again we would stop for a break

to stretch our legs and marvel

at a landscape so different to ours.

 

This was Africa…

as depicted in many photos and movies…

and we loved it

 

Then it was back on the road again…

past small  villages  until we reached

a main road (bitumen/black top)

leading to Maun.
