Here are some images from the past week of my travels, staying at two properties; Lions Sands River and Tinga Lodges. I have had a wonderful time being back in the bush again! It’s tea time shortly and then off to see what the afternoon has in store, so I will keep this brief.
I hope you enjoy my selections!
Just a quick post today as I am running a little short on time at the moment!
I loved watching these elephants greet each other as they all congregated around a dam. Different family groups joined up, took their time with greetings, getting refreshing drinks, and eventually, heading off in their separate ways.
It’s always a joy for me to spend time amongst elephants.
Here we are at Monday again. I felt like editing some elephant images recently, so that is what I have decided to share today. Elephants, with their amazingly textured skin, look fantastic in monochrome images (at least I think so!)
I hope you enjoy my selections. Have a great week!
It’s quite nice not having a theme this month, as I can select whatever images catch my attention. Today, it is a selection of images shot at or near sunset.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.
I have not photographed a single sign of spring this week, though I have been enjoying them immensely. I guess in some ways the topic, photographically at least, has been a fail, but it has been making me more aware, and more appreciative of the little signs that spring is on its way.
Today in fact, it really felt as if spring has arrived. Despite the lawn still being covered in snow, it was warm enough to sit on my front porch with an iced coffee and my knitting, and enjoy the warmth of the sun for awhile. Today, that felt a lot more important than rushing around trying to find an image that symbolized the change of seasons.
Instead, here is an image I just finished working on; a 3 shot panorama taken at Phinda Reserve, May 2017. Everyone knows elephants are my favourite, and they are a great stand-in whenever I need an image. This was another moment where sitting and allowing life to unfold was just perfect. Our guide knew the ellies would be heading for the dam, so we drove to it, and just waited. And they arrived shortly after, in groups of 2 and 3, until we had the scene here unfold. And then just as quietly, they all headed back into the bush, to carry on with the day.
Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead.
