Some outdoor scenes
Sunset at Lekhubu Island.
Our campsite at Lekhubu Island.
During a game drive from one of our Okavango Delta camps
we came across these elephants.
Our guides estimated we sighted
over 1,000 elephants that day.
…was equally as fascinating…
…as our game drives.
There was little more than…
…wheel tracks to lead us across Sua Salt Pan…
…which formed part of Botswana’s
Makgadikgadi Salt Pans
and also part of the Kalahari Desert.
On we drove following a trail of wheel tracks
towards Lekhubu Island surrounded by
little more than salt.
In fact Sua Pan covers 24,000 square kilometres
and is one of the largest playa lakes in the world.
And while I am certain we did not drive
the widest part there was no sign of civilisation
from whence we came or where we were going.
But our overnight stay at
surrounded by salt,
was well worth the journey.
A snake trail in Greater Kruger National Park.
Dirt tracks upon which a pride of lions rested.
Then a road which was not much more
than wheel tracks across Sua Pan,
one of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in Botswana.
The Sua Pan (or Sowa Pan) is a large natural topographic depression
within the Makgadikgadi region of Botswana.
The Makgadikgadi Pans were once a lake which
was larger in area than Switzerland.
It dried up several thousand years ago
Could we call this a water road, in Venice?
An extraordinary trip across to France and return via Eurostar.
Extraordinary because I was ‘talking’ to MGW’s cousin
via Facebook while under the Channel.
The Rocky Mountaineer.
Two days of travel through glorious scenery
with first class comfort and service
back to Vancouver.
the Peak2Peak gondola ride at Whistler a road.
However, it was the only way we could
Finally, there had to be a road of some sort
leading up onto the Athabasca Glacier
when we visited the Columbia Ice-field.
I doubt if we will ever get to ride in
one of these machines again.
Some of my favourite closeups, or crops..
Whilst there is more here than
the challenge requires
‘Percy’ still makes a good subject.
Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans
in the background
and very little else.
Lunch is down there.
Near Barwon Heads last Friday morning, April 26.
Saint Kilda Pier.
Crop some of the distraction and more focus
is on photographer and model,
completing a tertiary photography assignment.
An early morning shadow from the
Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and
flighty Kalahari Scrub Robin
At the other end of the day we begin our flight over
the Okavango Delta
at the Maun Airport.
cast long shadows.
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.
