PhotoShare: Mountain Stream

Here's a peaceful image to take you into the weekend...

Captured one morning back in 2010 in the Giant's Castle region of the Drakensberg mountains of South Africa.

Have a great weekend, friends!

PhotoShare: Close to Calves

If you follow me on social media you would have seen that I was fortunate to spend some time recently at a secluded research waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia.

I have a bunch of photos to process, but wanted to share a quick image here from the experience. One of the things I was amazed by (and relished) was spending time in an underground bunker hide right by the edge of a waterhole frequented by hordes of elephants.

This should give you an idea - the image below was photographed at a focal length of 135mm...and is only very slightly cropped for compositional aesthetics, taken with a "full frame" sensor camera.

Nikon D800  |  Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 VR-II @ 135mm  |  f8.0  |  1/800 SS  |  ISO-640

I will try and share some more images as time permits. Be sure to follow along on my Facebook page or Google+ profile as I share images with more regularity there.
