For the last few blog posts, I have been revisiting my journey through Uganda and editing some photos that I passed by the first go around. It’s been wonderful to review these images and relive the memories that I carry of that wonderful journey. Today and tomorrow will be the last of Uganda revisited, and after that, I am going to be moving on to revisiting my time in Kenya.
These images were taken at Queen Elizabeth National Park while staying at Ishasha Wilderness Lodge, along the Kazinga Channel while staying at Mweya Lodge, and in the Kibale Forest, where I stayed at Primate Lodge.
I’ve had some fun over the last few weeks playing around with some images in Topaz Studio and creating a bit of photo art. I had been hoping to get out with my camera and capture some of the new birds I have been seeing around, but the weather has definitely not been conducive to that this week. It seems to be a theme lately that I want to do more with my photography than time allows, but these sort of cycles ebb and flow, and there is no sense in getting all worked up about it. I’m just happy that I have something to share this week.
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 🙂
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’ve just got a single image today as I try to ease my way back into editing, posting etc. etc. after holidays.
I took along my tripod and my new infrared filter, and played around a bit during the down time in the middle of the day. This was taken from the back deck of my room at Lion Sands River Lodge. There were often nyalas grazing in the tall grass, but here, just a few trees and the river in the background.
