This image was created when I was playing around with my infrared filter during the early afternoon, in the down time between game drives. This was shot from my deck while staying at Lion Sands River Lodge. Infrared is definitely an area I want to explore more; this was definitely a case of playing around and seeing what happens, but I like the results.
My main computer has gone into sick bay after several months of acting funny, so I am without my editing software for the next few days at least. I do have a bunch of edited photos to choose from to create posts, but not quote as many as I would like on any one topic. C’est la vie. There’s nothing to be done about it, so I’ll just carry on and make the best of it.
Today I chose a couple of images I took while on a Panorama route tour in South Africa last May. It was a beautiful day trip that I would highly recommend to anyone; it is well worth the tie, especially if you have a nice day to explore.
Both of these were shot in an area called The Potholes.
Fingers crossed I am up and running again like normal next weekend 🙂
Today marks the first full day of winter, and while I am very grateful that thus far there haven’t been too many bitterly cold days in the transition between autumn and winter, I know they are coming. I find winter a challenging time, far more so now that I am living in the north than I used to. It isn’t just the temperatures; it is the lack of colour and the length of time that the area is carpeted in snow. Yes, the blue sky days, with the snow twinkling in the sunlight can be beautiful, but this morning, the dull grey skies and ice crystals hanging off the branches seemed to perfectly reflect how I feel about winter. At once both dull and sharp, beautiful and miserable.
I don’t get out to take images that often in winter; I suffer from Reynaud’s syndrome and being out in the type of thin gloves necessary to handle a camera can be a real challenge unless the day is fairly mild. Sometimes it is worth it regardless of the temperature, but those times are definitely the exception.
I spent a bit of time this morning wandering the yard, hoping to capture what I noticed while out walking my dog earlier this morning. By the time I got out though, most of the ice crystals hanging from the moss in the trees had dissipated from the slight rise in temperatures, but those clinging to the evergreens and willows still remained.
I always take a camera with me when I go out for walks with my dog (or on the rare occasion when I go for a walk on my own). I haven’t taken too many images in recent months, and as such hadn’t downloaded the card in quite some time. While out on Thursday, I saw a beautiful barred owl near my house, and while reviewing those pictures, I found a few others I had forgotten that I had taken.
This is a bit of a random assortment of images taken since July, while out and about on walks.
I wanted to share a few landscape scenes from some of the camps I stayed at this past May. The first two images were taken while staying at Lion Sands Tinga Lodge, and the last image was taken while staying at Chitwa Chitwa.
I hope you enjoying, and wishing you a fantastic week!
Today I wanted to share a few of the images that I captured while driving the Panorama Route in South Africa earlier this year. It’s a beautiful scenic drive with lots of opportunities to stop and take short walks to view waterfalls and breathtaking vistas, like the three rondavels. If you are travelling to South Africa, it is definitely a day trip worth taking.
I hope you enjoy my selections for the day, and wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead!
