Now you should try and do star trails, when you leave your shutter open for “hours” and the movement of the stars etc leave trails across the photo! Got to be done at new moon otherwise you get too much light in! Lovely shots and great effects done, well done

Hi Kirsten,

Thank you for the kind message.
I have tried star tracking before (probably not the best first attempt) but take a look here http://blog.londolozi.com/2013/06/home-away-from-home/
I had promised to try again so thank you for reminding me, hopefully I will post my next attempt here sometime very soon.

The photos coming out of Londolozi from you two and Mike S are incredible. The lioness facing right by Kate on this page: Kate do you license these for artists to use once as photo references? I could do that one on black paper in pastel 😉 my website is http://michelle-wolff.artistwebsites.com and http://www.etsy.com/shop/wolffdenpress and my email is wolffdenpress@gmail.com I am guessing that the more widespread these photos become the more requests you may get about this topic. I’d really love to know what the terms are for drawing these?

HI Michelle,

I must apologise for the delay in responding to you.
I have just taken a look at your work it is beautiful!!
Kate is on leave at the moment so i will make sure she responds to you on her return to the bush.

Thank you so much for your support, we all really appreciate the kind words of encouragement.

Please email your contact details in JHB as I didn’t get your card before Rael and I left.

Please share that we had a STUPENDOUS week end at Londolozi-a fitting treat for Rael who just got 8 Distinctions in matric.
