Wild Dogs Sleeping Kruger National Park

photo wild dogs sleeping kruger national park

On our way out of the Kruger National Park in December 2014 we took one of the sand roads leading from Crocodile Bridge towards Malelane Gate. Shortly before getting to the gate and nearing the end of the sand road we came across this group of Wild Dogs (Painted Dogs) Sleeping. We were only one of about 3 vehicles at the sighting and we were able to get a prime photographic position which in Kruger …

Rock Arch at Spitzkoppe Namibia in Infrared

Rock Arch at Spitzkoppe Namibia in Infrared

I love the black and white medium of photography and especially infrared as it as pure black and white as one can get straight out of a camera. When traveling I always have my infrared modified camera with me and on my trips to Namibia it was no different. When I visited the famous Spitzkoppe or Groot Spitzkop landmark in Namibia and went to the famous Rock Bridge / Arch the first camera I grabbed …

Two Windows One World – Rock Bridge Spitzkoppe Namibia

spitzkoppe rock bridge namibia landscape photo

Here is a different view “Two Windows One World – Rock Bridge Spitzkoppe Namibia” of the famous rock bridge landmark at Spitzkoppe in Namibia. Spitzkoppe is such an amazing place, out from the middle of the desert rises these spectacular granite outcrops which at sunset or sunrise make for some truly spectacular photography. I sat right under the rock arch when I photographed this and I was pleased with the outcome of the image. For …

Mankwe Dam Pilanesberg Infrared Fine Art Landscape

mankwe dam pilanesberg infrared fine art landscape

I took this photo yesterday morning from the Mankwe Bird Hide at Mankwe Dam in the Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa. It was an absolutely stunning sunrise and once the sun had risen just above the hills the timing and light was just perfect for some infrared photography. It was absolutely freezing cold in the bird hide because of the cold air coming off the water but of course worth every second of being there. …

Sossusvlei Sunset Namibia Panoramic Landscape

sossusvlei sunset namibia panoramic landscape

I took this image back in 2011 on a trip to Namibia. It was the first time I had seen Sossusvlei with water in it which was a treat, another treat is that other than the driver you took me into Sossusvlei I was the only person there, not a soul to be seen which meant no footprints in the sand. I climbed up this dune, leaving footprints behind me of course and then sat …

Basie Van Zyl – In Memoriam – Loss of a Legend

Basie Van Zyl whilst I was on a trip with him to Kenton on Sea in 2009. A Truly colorful, vibrant, humorous, eccentric man and an absolute great photographer. Teller of Tall Humorous and all of them True, not just tall tales. You will be Sadly Missed.

I know this post may seem a bit late but this morning whilst on Facebook I accidentally came across some news of the passing of Basie van Zyl on Monday the 10th of February 2014. To say I am shocked would be an understatement, I met Basie for the first time on a trip to Kenton on Sea in 2009 and quite a few other times since then and what can I say he was …

The Forgotten Tree Deadvlei Namibia

forgotten tree deadvlei namibia landscape textures

The Forgotten Tree Deadvlei Namibia Let me just say that I believe for every photographer their first trip to Deadvlei is overwhelming, Sooooo much to shoot and sooooo little time. Each and every one, myself included, focuses on the big dead trees and often overlook the little things like this “Forgotten Tree” which they will probably walk right past. I specifically wanted to capture the clay textures and then found this little tree which had …

Spaghetti Season Desert Footprints Deadvlei Namibia

Deadvlei-Spaghetti-Season-Foot-Prints-Trails-Namibia

“Spaghetti Season in Deadvlei” We all know about Spaghetti Season in Deavlei, when Sossusvlei and Deadvlei in Namibia are bombarded by masses of Italian visitors. On my first trip to Namibia I just happened to be there during this exact season and I was the very last person to leave Deadvlei that day. After climbing back up the big sand dune from inside Deadvlei I spotted this scene and thought I had to capture it. …
