Near the Ishasha Wilderness Camp, we found a lovely spot perched over the river valley, the perfect place to watch the sunrise.

From our perch in Ishasha, not only did we watch the sunrise, but we also watched some hyena hassle a group of crowned cranes.

2017-03-20: Monochrome Monday

Happy first day of Spring!  My goodness I am certainly happy to say that, and also very happy that it is finally starting to feel like winter has loosened its grip around here.  I’m at the point now where only 50% of my lawn is still cover in snow!

For today, I thought I would share a mixed bag of photos from my trip to East Africa.

Happy Monday all, and have a wonderful week!

A spooky tree that I think would be amazing to shoot with the stars in the background.  Fingers crossed I find some more spooky trees on my next trip.
