Africa is a Photographer's Paradise

in #africa6 years ago (edited)

I'm just looking through my hard drive now and am just finding some old gems from my past travels. Some of which happens to be from my trip to Tanzania / Kenya. It was an amazing trip, as it was an all expenses paid photo editorial trip to go on a Safari. There's nothing like the vast open areas of the African plains. Just roaming around the dirt roads with the animals wandering around freely really puts things in perspective. The only time I looked at my phone was to post to Facebook that I was still alive :p

It was my first time using a telephoto lens, so I was kind of nervous, but the autofocus was spot on and I managed to capture some spectacular images! Here are the ones that ended up as print and actually hanging on my bedroom wall.

This baby elephant just came to itch himself next to our car

A lion cub must have chased down a Masaai Warrior and get some of his pants :p

Some men jumped on the back of a truck on their way home

Anyone else been to such an amazing land?

These are beautiful - Our continent is truly a magnificent place - I am a proud South African - resteeming your post

That's very kind of you Anneke! I hope to go back to that wonderful continent very soon.

Looks amazin and fantastic images as well....You should also make a point of visiting the Nairobi National Park in the Kenyan capital. You get the beauty of both worlds. Great hotels and the awesome wild. The Maasai Mara is another great place.

Ah! I'm getting butterflies in my stomach just THINKING about going back! Hopefully I'll have enough money saved up from crypto to head there this year.
