Kalahari Lion

Many of you will know that I have taken a sabbatical from the wildlife photography this year, well, to write about wildlife instead. I am pushing on the writing career and have focused on getting the two series I am working on, out to market.

I’ll be posting some of my favourites images from the past 10 years, so hope that you enjoy a little trip down memory lane with me.

First up, it has to be the Black-maned Lion of the Kalahari. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to be precise. Along with the Arctic circle and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe, the Kalahari is still one of my favourite places I have been too. This male was spotted on the second-last day of a 22 day trip. In the early evening as I neared the camp of Twee Rivieren, this fella was just lying in the river bed.

I took a few photos and then realised that he had just had a huge meal as hiss... more »

Humpback diving. We spent 45mins or so with a few pods of bubble-netting whales as they fed. Such a wonderful experience. Svalbard, Arctic

Taken yesterday at Dulwich College, London, with my brother-in-law (on the right). They are from Hilton College in South Africa, and are on a 15 day cricket tour of schools in the UK.

This was just before the Pimms and Guinness started flowing. Hilton hammered Dulwich in a 30 over game and then also in the T20 game afterwards. Great young talent on display from both sides.

10 years of Nature Photography at Bushy Park, 2005-2015

Way back in the days of a thing called Velvia film (1998- 2000), I used to hike around Richmond Park (Greater London),  taking nature images of all manner of things (I had just arrived in the UK after all). Then digital cameras started to take a foothold in the market, and I started to look at a system to replace my film-based Minolta system. I met a birdwatcher in Richmond who asked whether I had seen the kingfishers at Bushy Park. I said I had no idea where that was and so the day I received my Canon 20D, I looked at the map and went to have a look at this place.

That was back in 2005, and the other day I realised that I had called Bushy my “local patch” for 10 years. So here are some of my favourites out of the many that I have taken there. I do love the winters at Bushy as there is a lot of standing water, whichmean... more »

I do love the winters at Bushy as there is a lot of standing water, which means a lot of morning mist. Hope you enjoy them as I try to showcase the diverse place it is.

Great 5star review for Phoenix.

A Gripping Post-Apocalyptic Thriller.

"Phoenix is the second book of the series 'The Journey of Kyle Gibbs'. I enjoyed the first novel ( 'Celt') where I left Kyle Gibbs and his team on a prison ship in a quite complicated situation.
The second adventure of Kyle Gibbs has not disappointed me on the action and plot line. Phoenix is definitely a fast-paced page turner. Most of the story takes place in Europe in 2028. However, I was also absorbed with Chilemba and his adventure in Africa, you can tell the author knows Africa well."

Overall, I enjoyed this book and recommend it to readers looking for a brilliant thriller."

Introducing the Photographer # 11

Name: Susan Portnoy
Photography area: Wildlife, Travel

What I love about her work:
Susan has clearly been infused with the wanderlust. I first saw her wildlife work on Google Plus and now follow her on most other Social media platform. I just discovered her blog and will recommend it for well-written and thoughtful posts which cover wildlife, travel and travel portraits. Strong portraits with great colour make for interesting stories.
Her wildlife work is up there with the best and I look forward to seeing more as she gets about the planet. A love of Africa is clearly evident. I recommend following Susan on any of the social sites you use.

Bio from website:
I was born in the Midwest, but after years of living in the concrete jungle I qualify as a New York native. I am a dyed-in-the-wool romantic who adores traveling. Almost anywhere will do, but nothing gets my pulse racing like exotic destinations with authentic cultures, wild animals, or remnants of ancient civilizations. In other words, Machu Picchu, Myanmar and Africa are high on my list of places I love, though a walk through New York’s Botanical Gardens can also thrill.
About five years ago, photography became an integral part of my travels. Whether on the far side of the planet, or on the boardwalk of Coney Island, capturing the moment, nailing that perfect shot (I haven’t yet, by the way), has become an addictive artistic challenge and a new kind of adventure, all in one.  
My day job revolves around communications, public relations and social media. My dream is to become independently wealthy and travel 24/7. Until that happens, I’ll travel when I can, and take pictures along the way.

SPEED

A female cheetah at full tilt after a Springbuck. This mother of two adolescent cubs was a absolute machine. Saw her make 3 kills in 4 days. I managed to spend many an hour with them in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park(near Mata Mata) in South Africa,  then they simply vanished. That evening a pride of lions moved into the riverbed. Clever mom I would say.

Hungry Hippo

Standing on a bridge north of the Olifants camp in the Kruger National Park, and waiting for the sun to clear the horizon, I walked across the width of the bridge, a few times, looking for something to photograph. Luckily I looked straight down too. This Hippo was just floating below the surface, not moving. a few minutes later it surfaced to breath.
i simply had to lean out and take the photo. Love Africa...

Next generation Rhino

On my first ever trip to India, I journeyed to the north west of the country to focus on these Jurassic-like animals in Kaziranga. On the way, I also stopped in at Manas and the Nameri eco-camp to scope out some of the bird life.

Kaziranga is such a wonderful park, split into regions, and these two were found whilst I was out on elephant back. I chose the shortest elephant possible to allow me to get a lower angle with these One-horned Rhino, and thus try to get more intimate images. The downside of course, was getting through the tall Elephant grass which proved interesting as you are then head-height with all the snakes which have climbed up the grass to sun themselves in the morning sun. 

The slight purple hue in the background is a constant feature as large swathes of the park are burnt to keep the grass fresh and new.

Why humans think it's fine to consume products that come from these docile and magical creatures, is beyond me. The far east has a lot to answer for.

Wonderful share from +Mike Hankey Good seascape.

Rocky Outcrop

Part of the volcanic outcrop which forms Rocky Point.
A stellar morning on the Northern NSW coast.
The clouds started picking up colour from first light and the colour kept on going until well past sunrise.
This was taken just before sunrise, looking North up the coast. The most distant headland visible is Byron Bay, the most Easterly point on the Australian Coastline

So a lot has happened...

1. Been at a 4 day wedding bash in the Drakensberg, South Africa... Left my liver there.
2. I became a Grandfather of twin girls.
3. Had my first approach by someone interested in the Kyle Gibbs Series
4. Found out that John Wick leaves a higher body count than Gibbs. Will be rectified.
5. Discovered Dubai airport is huge

When you're the king, you may stand on your food

Came across a Buffalo kill in the Kruger National Park made by three females with four cubs. It had been there a day or two, judging by the smell, and they were not actively feeding, more snacking.

It is amazing that this little fella was so uber protective of the kill, and here he is watching three approaching Hooded Vultures.

Fish Eagle

Such an iconic African bird. this was actually my first sighting as I went into the Kruger National Park last year in a 10 day trip. Always a great way to start the trip. I just love the clean background, such an important thing in wildlife photography.

Kalahari Lion

Many of you will know that I have taken a sabbatical from the wildlife photography this year, well, to write about wildlife instead. I am pushing on the writing career and have focused on getting the two series I am working on, out to market.

I’ll be posting some of my favourites images from the past 10 years, so hope that you enjoy a little trip down memory lane with me.

First up, it has to be the Black-maned Lion of the Kalahari. The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park to be precise. Along with the Arctic circle and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe, the Kalahari is still one of my favourite places I have been too. This male was spotted on the second-last day of a 22 day trip. In the early evening as I neared the camp of Twee Rivieren, this fella was just lying in the river bed.

In the early evening as I neared the camp of Twee Rivieren, this fella was just lying in the river bed.

I took a few photos and then realised that he had just had a huge meal as his stomach was massive. The photos were looking a little comical, so I thought the king deserved a little more of a flattering angle. I reversed the 4×4 a few meters back and popped on the long lens.

The serene look of a male, well fed, along with the wonderful afternoon light, highlight this one as one of my favourites.
