2018-04-29: Kenya Highlights Video

I’ve had a great time over the past 10 days reviewing all of my video clips from my time in Kenya and putting together some highlights as the last instalment of my wide angles only project.  With the exception of the lion cub video clip, which was shot on a Panasonic FX1000, all clips were done on the Gopro, and I edited and built the video using the free Gopro studio software.

 

If you missed the video from Uganda, you can find that here.

Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead.  It’s time for me to ponder what my topic will be for May.

I was a bit delayed in getting this posted, so I will keep this post nice and brief.  Just an elephant at their scratching tree to start the week.  I think elephants are a good way to start any week 🙂

Isn’t this little guy just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?  I spotted him on my last afternoon in the Masai Mara, and while he started out acting all tough, he soon realized that we weren’t any type of threat, and relaxed completely.

While we were driving from camp to the river crossing location, we came across an area where wildebeest were moving in a column, for as far and the eye could see in either direction.  I tried creating a stitched panorama, but even that only provides a hint of the overwhelming number of animals on the plains.

2017-08-04: WPC Textures

The photo challenge prompt of the week is textures.  There are a lot of directions that this can be taken; I decided on a combination of animals in their environment and animal portraits.

I hope you enjoy my take on texture.

Agama Lizard, Kenya, September 2016.  I like the contrast of the colourful, scaly agama lizard against the drab brown tree trunk and the spiky thorn branches.

A lioness walks through the desert in Namibia, April, 2017.  Desert environments can seem one dimensional from a distance, but they are full of an amazing variety of textures.  Sharp rocky outcrops, weathered wood, shifting sand, sparse vegetation and of course, the landscape occasionally dotted with animals and birds.

Dense fog, dry grass, the pitted sides of a termite mound.  Oh, and a cheetah too 🙂  South Africa, May 2017

Soft fur, spiky whiskers and a whole lot of slippery slime.  A leopard cub plays in a very swampy area of the bush.  South Africa, May 2017.

WPC: Textures

2017-06-19: Monochrome Monday

I wish I had an extra couple hours in each day; then I would have the free time to figure out how to extract the audio from some clips I have of this lion and his brother roaring into the night.  Our vehicle was parked between the two, and being amongst lions roaring in surround sound is a heart-stopping experience.  Even the cubs playing nearby stopped in their tracks!  But alas, video isn’t something I’ve invested time in, so you’ll just have to make due with an image instead.  But it’s a pretty nice image, if I do say so myself.

Wishing everyone a fantastic week ahead.
