Hello folks! It's an OPEN THEME for African Tuesday today, so anything goes...

Share your photos from Africa with the hashtag #AfricanTuesday and make sure you tag the +African Tuesday page as well.

Join me in Mana Pools!
This +Wild Eye Photographic Safari is the trip of a lifetime...
In this magical place you will get to spend time on foot with elephants, lions, wild dogs (hopefully) and many other iconic African species. The light is truly inspirational and the beauty of the scenes will leave you breathless - it's unlike any other spot in Africa.

I am hosting a safari from 19-24 July 2016. All the details can be found here - or simply ask me your questions in the comments:

"Study of a Kalahari King"
Male Lion
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Kalahari Desert, South Africa

This will possibly be my last post on G+ for 2 weeks. We are headed back to the Kalahari desert (where I photographed this lion last year) for some family R&R and obviously some safari and photography.

I might post a mobile snap from the field if connection allows, but in general I try to switch off from mobile connectivity when there (there is also usually little to no reception).

I wish all of you a wonderful 2016!!!

It's #WildlifeWednesday, of course...

A great challenge to consider by my friend and passionate conservation photographer Jasper Doest. I'm not one for "New Year's Resolutions" per se but I like this - if we all make small incremental changes in the way we interact with our planet and its finite resources we really can affect change...

Details here: http://www.wild-eye.co.za/migration2016/

"Windmill Milky Way" - AFRICAN TUESDAY

All December we are running an AFRICAN HOLIDAY theme for African Tuesday - share your photos taken while on holiday/vacation in Africa! Simply tag them with #AfricanTuesday and also tag the +African Tuesday page.

I captured this photo on a cold Karoo night back in April, on a family road trip to the coast. The wind churned the windmill nicely during the long exposure, and the slight moisture in the air as fog came in gave some nice sparkle to the starry sky.

"Face of Wisdom"
African Bush Elephant
Kruger National Park, South Africa.

I love getting close to elephants - but it's easy to try and capture just wider angle shots in those cases. Using a telephoto lens allows you to really extract so much detail from their faces and hides.

Here's how you can share during the holidays for #AfricanTuesday...

#AfricanTuesday theme announcement: We will have our usual "AFRICAN HOLIDAY" theme for the whole of December and up to 5 January 2016 as it is the curator's main holiday season.

Please keep the photos family and work viewing friendly. The photos must have been taken in Africa. If you post photos taken by other people, you must state so and state the author if possible.

Important: share your photos to "public" or else your photo will not be considered for one of the top 5 photos of the week (we cannot re-share it for the theme if you don’t - a Google+ requirement)

To submit your photos to the theme:
1. tag #AfricanTuesday " AFRICAN HOLIDAY "
2. include the curator team ( +Morkel Erasmus , +Dick Whitlock and +Grobler du Preez ) so we can pick up on your posts easily.
One of the top 5 photos will be the banner for the +African Tuesday page for a week!
