Throw Back Thrusday to 2010 - FULL CHARGE

While working the border between Tanzania and Kenya, I started photographing this bull that separated himself from the main herd. Using a telephoto to compress the distance a bit gave me the added safety distance that I needed.  All in a days work I guess.

Throw Back Thursday to 2012

Tanzania - Serengeti - Aug 2012
While leading a 'Thru the Lens Safari' with Thomson Safaris, we observed three male cheetahs in the distance.  Before we knew it, they were heading straight for us and one of them decided to play cat and mouse with us hiding behind a tree.  This went on for several minutes allowing us to get some really fun photographs.

Using a 70-200mm at the widest aperture, I was able to create a very shallow depth of field focusing only on the eyes of the Cheetah.

Cheers and happy photo'ing

Throw-Back Thursday

Taking you way back to 2009 in Kenya.  This image was taken at Mara Plains Camp next to the Masai Mara Park in Kenya.  Taken with a Nikon 400mm lens, it is a prime example of why I love long lenses for sunsets.  When we rounded the corner returning to camp we saw the huge sun setting.  We ran at full pace from the car park to the front of the camp for the shot.  During the final few shots, several wildebeests walked across the plains.  I am transported back to this wonderful place every time I look at this image.

Cheers and happy photo'ing
