Word-of-Day-Challenge-Gazelle

~~~~~

gazelle

a small, slender antelope that typically has curved horns
and a fawn-coloured coat with white underparts,
found in open country in Africa and Asia.
~~~~~

Our first sighting…

…of African animals.

 

Impala…

 

…the rabbits of Africa.

At least that’s what we were told

and have come to believe to be true.

You will always sight an Impala on a game drive.

Kudu

We were told that kudu burgers

were on the menu one night..

Tasted okay.

Fairly certain these are Springbok members

of the gazelle clan.

While the African wildlife…

…soon lost its novelty value…

…never, was an animal sighting less than awesome.

 

 

Although uncommon visitors to our car,

the Yellow Billed Hornbill was

a common sight during our African Safaris.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Proposal

~~~~~

proposal

a plan or suggestion, especially a formal or written one,
put forward for consideration by others.

About twelve months ago we were finalising plans…

…for our 2020 visit to Africa.

 

Emails were swapped on a daily basis with our guides

as we sorted out the itinerary.

SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Favourite-Photo

~~~~~~~

 

 

I’m not sure if I could find

a favourite photo, so…

…this would have to be one of my favourite images,

after all it is not every day that one has

the opportunity to photograph

(wild) six week old lion clubs.

Also from our 2013 African Safari this zebra image

was a favourite even before it became

my first image sold.

 

 

Playing with camera settings I created this image image.

MGW loved it and it now adorns one of our walls.

Earlier this year I began to load some images

to Gurushots.com challenges.

This image has earned the greatest

number of votes for me

and has been rated in the

Top 100 images three times,

as well as finishing in the

Top 20 and Top 30 on 16 other occasions.

And I am still not sure why :-).

As I have often said I have no taste

when it comes to art.
