Wonderful blog, thanks ! I bet Adam will be peeved that he left too early to see the Southern Pride back on Londolozi ! I wonder why Floppy Ear wasn’t allowed to eat ?

These photos bring back so many wonderful memories of our trip to Londolozi back in 1999.

James, the sunrise pic is simply splendid and I understand you get up early for that!! One techie question: do you use aperture priority for most of your pics?
Keep them coming. Looking forward to it every Friday.

Hi Jan

To answer your question as James is away on leave-yes, I know he does shoot on aperture priority. It is generally the mode used most often in wildlife photography, but there are many different ways of achieving the same outcome and in the end it comes down to personal preference.

Thanks Dave,

I do indeed shoot on aperture priority but like David says, it is a matter of preference. I like aperture priority as the depth of field is under your control.
For the sunrise pic I made sure to underexpose by 2 stops (2 stops isn’t always necessary and the amount can be played around with) in order to capture the gold and orange and not have the pic completely blown out.

What a beautiful collection of pictures! Sunrise over a misty April Londolozi brought on a severe spasm of ‘homesickness’.
