The Great Migration Herds Head On

Another magnificent day in the Serengeti. Before we left the camp area, we came across some 50 giraffes and about 100 zebras just hanging out taking advantage of the tall grasses and the lush trees. What a way to start the morning! Last night I received a game report at dinner concerning the migration herd. I made the decision to rise early and make a long drive to the Lobo area in hopes of running into the wildebeest herds. My hunch paid off in spades with wildebeests as far as the eye could see. Along the way we were treated to three cheetahs and of course some wonderful cloud formations that made for some great landscapes. I wonder what tomorrow will hold for us in the Seregenti?

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
