Jeremy Luski was a guest at Varty Camp from the 31st of January until the 3rd of this month and one day, much to my delight he decided to take a leisurely stroll up to the Creative Hub. He was interested in what we were all about and wanted to get sharing! Well, when I saw what he was willing to share with us, I knew that I would be would be doing a disservice to you all if I did not post these pictures. With Don Heyneke as his ranger, they would head out rain or shine to capture some amazing picture. Jeremy, thank you for sharing!

Two of the Majingilane males looking very regal while looking on as a herd of impala pass by, not a snack worth the energy for them!
My favourite and one of the pictures that Jeremy ended up printing on canvas in the Londolozi Creative Hub.
Not an easy picture to achieve as the light from the sky can often create a silhouette and the colours of the bird do not come out. For a shot like this I would recommend spot metering and to expose for the bird. European rollers often don’t sit still long enough to get a picture, making this a image a spectacular achievement.

Today seems to be a day of alliteration and here you can See the Sun Setting over the Sand river.

Woodlands Kingfisher is a migrant bird and they movw into the equatorial zone in the dry season. It is a wonderful sign of summer when the well known call is heard in the early days of summer.
The sunset colours at this time of year are truly spectacular and the landscape of this rocky outcrop has been photographed beautifully by Jeremy.
The ‘rule’ of not cutting off the tail seems to be a recurring theme amongst the blogs these days and here is a perfect example of how crucial it can be to creating a beautiful image.
