Dad and Daugther on Safari

It’s always very special when family members join one another on safari.  I told both of my daughters some time ago that I wanted to take them on one of my safaris.  This May safari I was lucky enough to have Coogan join me in between her MBA graduation and the start of her new job.  Coogan, thanks for finding time to join me and really making this safari very special to me.   Love you lots, Dad.  Thanks to Scott for taking time to snap this photo of us on the overlook deck at Mbaligiti Lodge.

Nikon D4, 70-200mm @ 135, ISO 250, 1/100 sec at f/13.  This image was taken here.

Cheers and happy photo’ing

Safari Update Day 10

On our final days of our safari in and around Mbaligiti, we spent time working on landscapes and composition.  As we approached our camp for the last time, the the clouds were building in the distance giving us some wonderful landscape opportunities.  In the truck that I was riding in, I demonstrated the importance of having an anchor point in your landscapes.  In the two images below, one has a simple tree in the lower corner and the second image, the tree has been removed.  Which is more pleasing to you?

Cheers and happy photo’ing.
