Mopane Skeleton Sunset

Got a Bucket List? Then you need to add a Lake Kariba (Zimbabwe) sunset to the list.  Every single evening you will be treated to a stellar sunset and the mopane tree forest sunken over 50 years ago haunt the vista with their skeletons.

Imvula for +African Tuesday "Big Cats" Theme
BEST VIEWED LARGE

The heavens opened up 10 minutes before our scheduled game drive and it looked like it was going to be a wash.  Fortunately everyone was game for getting wet so off we ventured into the rain.  We unexpectedly came across Imvula whose name ironically is the Zulu word for rain.  No the light was not great, but capturing a glimpse of this great wet cat was something to remember.  

Location: Sabi Sand, South Africa

Tech: Canon 1Dx, EF 200-400mm f4L IS USM EXT, 400mm, 640/sec, f4.0, ISO 5000.

For my lovely wife +Karen Rowland Yeo just so she knows I'm taken good care of her boy while she's traveling.  He's getting lots of exercise and is great practice for action wildlife photography.

Yes it's true...I finally went to the dark side and started using Facebook! Stop by and check out my Lux Solis Studio - Nature Photography page. I'll do posts on FB and G+ but will keep duplication of images/post to a minimum.  Got to keep it fresh ;)

Oops.  Forgot to share publicly.  My wife is mad at me ;)

For the Love of Mud for +African Tuesday 

I can sit for hours watching ellies.  Why anyone would every consider killing them for some ridiculous ivory trinket is beyond my comprehension.  I must have shot 300 frames of this family enjoying their time in the mud.  Love the photos I got but the smiles and laughs we had watching their love-of-the -mud was priceless.

Crocs have killed 2 local residents on the shores of Lake Kariba in the last month.  We had a chance to photograph some of these beasts on our recent trip to Zimbabwe.  This massive fellow was at least 4 meters long and didn't appreciate the attention.

Danger Close
BEST VIEWED LARGE

Crocs have killed 2 local residents on the shores of Lake Kariba in the last month.  We had a chance to photograph some of these beasts on our recent trip to Zimbabwe.  This massive fellow was at least 4 meters long and didn't appreciate the attention.

Big V and his Crew

On foot with the giant forest elephants in Mana Pools was an exhilarating experience.  Thanks to +Marlon du Toit , +Wild Eye, Tess, Dave and master tracker Kevin (www.mwinilunga.com) for a wild time in Zimbabwe.  By the way, he is known as "V" because of the V-notch in his lower left ear.

Matusadona Lioness BEST VIEWED LARGE

This beautiful girl and her mates were calling all night long.  We made an early morning run into a narrow channel along the shores of Elephant Point on Lake Kariba with our pontoon tender boat and were rewarded with six lions stalking the shoreline.  This was a pretty exciting sighting since it was not the usual "lazy lion" situation.  Once this girl noticed us she jumped two small channels of water and a made a beeline to us. She was on the hunt so we gave her some space because there was simply not enough room on the boat for another passenger.

Pink Dawn for +African Tuesday

Good morning friends!  We just returned from a super trip to Zimbabwe.  There were so many wonderful moments in front of and behind the camera lens.  I thought I'd start by sharing an image from our last day at Mana Pools.  Enjoy!

Elephant Yoga for +African Tuesday 

I believe this elephant is attempting the Upward Facing Dog pose ;)

In less than 10 day we are off to Zimbabwe for 2 weeks.  We'll be splitting our time between Rhino Safari Camp (http://www.rhinosafaricamp.com), Mana Pools with the gang from +Wild Eye, and then a water-based safari from houseboat on Lake Kariba.  I am way overdue to get out of my stuffy office and into the bush where I feel much more at home.  I'll be trying out some new Canon gear this year (1Dx body and EF 200-400mm f/4 USM + internal 1.4x TC) and hope to get a review posted on my yet to be released blog when I return.  Catch you later my friends.

My First  

BEST VIEWED LARGE

Yep - this is the first Common Loon I've ever seen in the wild or photographed.  Lucky me, I got some good intel from the local marina owner who spotted him and passed on the info.  I rolled out of bed, walked 100 meters and there he was feeding 20 feet from the docks.  I'm never too proud to take the lazy wildlife shot :o)  Enjoy.

Location: Mystic, CT, USA
Tech: Canon 1Dx, 500mm f/4L IS II + 1.4x TC, 1/1000 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 400

Yes - I still shoot landscapes :-)  BEST VIEWED LARGE

Note: I've decided to re-post this image after giving my tired old eyes a nights rest.  They thought the image was over-saturated last night so I backed off.  Well this morning's fresh eyes see that I went too far. Here is hopefully a better version :)

You may have noticed that I haven't posted many landscape over the last several months.  Well that's because I've been busy chasing wildlife ;)  A relaxing week on Green Turtle Cay gave me the chance to give it a go again.  Well at least when I wasn't sipping rum on the beach.  Enjoy and share.

Fish On!

The local osprey lets us know when its time to go fishing again. He shows off an early Spring flounder snagged from Long Island Sound. This was the first real test for my new Canon 1Dx.  Auto-focus tracking was amazing even with the osprey flying directly at me and the 12 fps frame rate is awesome for birds in flight. Enjoy!

Fish On!

The local osprey lets us know when its time to go fishing again. He shows off an early Spring flounder snagged from Long Island Sound. This was the first real test for my new Canon 1Dx.  Auto-focus tracking was amazing even with the osprey flying directly at me and the 12 fps frame rate is awesome for birds in flight. Enjoy!
