Night Watch in the Village

Late night when I was shooting these images I saw only one moving target (a police vehicle) hence the title of this gallery. All pictures processed in DxO Optics Pro 9

 

Chilling Cheetah in the wild

Some, in fact most, tourists visit a sanctuary, a game reserve of a zoo to see animals. That’s the safe way. I rather see them in a natural environment. But than one must be lucky to see any because most of the ‘wild’ animals are shy unless you enter their territory or protecting their young ones etc. Last week I was lucky during a forest walk on a hot day (45 degrees Celcius/113 degrees Fahrenheit).  A cheetah chilling in the shade, every now and than turning his head around. Carefully (standing with the camera holding at knee height, not making myself small by sitting) I shot some pictures. The whole shooting session lasted about 30 seconds and Yvonne was covering my back. After that we walked slowly backwards for some distance before we walked forward again but than in another direction.. 😀

I processed  all images a bit different.

The choice is yours! 😀

 

Rooting and Shooting the Texan Way

Last year we got a small cutting of a Bombax tree from a friend in College Station (Tx, USA). We kept in in a pot to root and this South African Spring we planted it and now it’s shooting.

Yes; our garden is slowly becoming the Wild West of Stanford …. 😉
