Cracking photos , and as you say sometimes it’s the usual, though in all fairness it sometimes takes many trips to appreciate it
Loved the Turaco photo, good use of rule of thirds and unusual eye contact

General Nature, Macro Photography, Photography, The Week in Pictures, Wildlife
A typical day for me during the normal hustle and bustle of Londolozi Game Reserve living is unfortunately not filled with photography. However with a slightly slower pace during the global lockdown, the unexpected silver lining is I have the opportunity to spend more time with our ranger team out on the reserve, enjoying some remarkable sightings as well as my own ventures chasing photographic opportunities. The setting or rising sun and the smaller creatures I bump into on a daily basis, have all helped me build even more of an appreciation for the life I live here as well as the fauna and flora we share Planet Earth with.
My photographic journey over the 5 years here at Londolozi has led me in a slightly different direction to what is typically photographed and featured on our blog. I love photographing elusive leopards, giant elephants and roaring lions as much as anyone else but I have found myself gravitating towards what I find much less frantic but more challenging; the photographic genres of landscape and macro photography. I find pure satisfaction in patiently waiting, days, months or years for the right conditions and factors to come together for a landscape shot I have in mind. I am always assessing cloud formations in the hope that they will allow for an incredible sunset and I find myself whilst out doing inspections of the roads and dams on the reserve, looking for interesting trees or rock formations and potential compositions to photograph. It becomes quite consuming but worth it if it all comes together.
Enjoy this Week in Pictures…
Thank you for any assistance and your time.
