PhotoShare: Kissed by the Sun

It's been a while since I shared a photo outright on my blog for the sake of just sharing a photo. Here's one I processed last night from a 2012 trip to the Kalahari. The first rays of sunlight were just enveloping this lone giraffe and I loved the mood. What do you think??

The key to a good rim-light photo is proper exposure. If you have time, play around until the histogram looks good and you have good shadow and highlight detail...

Until next time!

A reason for every season in the Kgalagadi

Those who follow my photography will know that I tend to visit the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park…a lot.

I cannot think of a single naturalist or wildlife photography fanatic in South Africa who doesn’t have a passion for the Kgalagadi. It’s got so much going for it: wide open terrain, big skies, intense predator action, diverse wildlife and some of the best photographic light that you can find.

I often get asked when is the best time to go.

The answer? Any time…

Seriously, though, I thought of a few of the pros and cons of every season in the Kalahari...and wrote them down. You'll have to click through to the actual article on the Wild Eye blog HERE

Happy snapping!
