Cracking photos, the elephants eye is such a cliche but it works. My favourite is if you can strip the photo down to just one or two colours.

OK – your hippo picture is upside down… I think. There’s a faint – a VERY faint – blue ripple over his head as the picture is now. One of the best reflection photos I’ve ever seen. And may I ask a question – how did you get the lion to open his mouth for the dentist!

The photo of the impala hooves and leopard’s tail is a work of art.

Love most of these photos and saved a few to my gallery. I so agree about looking for the abstract in nature or shooting from a different angle. I’m partial to the eyes, trunks and horns… makes one wonder about the rest of the animal.

Absolutely fabulous!!

So many moments on safari are abstract, it is wonderful to see these photos and remember the incredible moments when you just catch a glimpse. Victoria
