African Stormy Sunset – Thunderstorm Lightning Photography

african thunderstorm stormy sunset lightning photo

As the sun was setting on the 24th of December 2010, the most incredible scene presented itself to me. I saw storms starting to build from around 5pm but thought they had arrived too early and the chances of catching the storms doing their thing at sunset seemed a bit of a long shot. In the last 10-15 minutes of the sun setting I saw there was a gap on the horizon and the potential …

Lone Fisherman Landscape Seascape Photo – Umhlanga, South Africa

Lone Fisherman Fishing on Rocks at Sunrise at Umhlanga Beach in

Here’s one from my archives which remains a favorite image of mine. I was at Umhlanga Beach on the South Coast of South Africa in the early morning for some seascape shoots. It was quite a cloudy and muggy day and hope’s of anything fantastic happening with the sunrise seemed slim. Shortly after the sun had risen it found it’s way through a gap in the clouds and at this point a fisherman had taken …

Baby Elephant Leading the Way

This is a repost of one of my older image with a panoramic crop to the image. I never ever though of cropping this image as I truly loved the original full frame version but when it was selected as the cover for a Lattice Board “African Elephants” on Photoshelter, I saw this image in a whole new light. I think the crop actually gives a lot more power to the image and I thought …

Lightning over Cradle of Humankind – Maropeng (Unesco COHWHS)

Man vs Machine. A Lightning storm I captured over Maropeng, the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site in South Africa in 2009. This image is a composite (blend) of 24 single frames which took a lot of time to complete due to the different lighting conditions from the approaching lightning storm and the very bright lights illuminating the Maropeng Concrete Bollards at the entrance. Certainly one of the more challenging post processing of a lightning …

Nature’s Fury – An Electrifying Journey through Lightning Photography

photo of lightning strikes over the voortrekker monument in South Africa.

This is a slideshow of some of my lightning photography spanning over 8 years now. I originally did this slideshow about 3 years ago but never ever publicly released it even though it’s been on my mind for sometime now. Yesterday I finally posted it on YouTube and hope you all like it. This is only version 1 of the slideshow, I intend to revise this pretty shortly with many more images and post Version …

Lightning Panorama over Pretoria (Tshwane), South Africa

This is a panorama of a lightning storm over Pretoria (now called Tshwane) that I photographed back in 2009. This image is a composite (blend) of 10 frames. I shot easily 100 frames that night of this one storm but only chose 10 to blend together into this single exposure. I often do not blend images and prefer single frame exposures but I was happy with the outcome of this. It was nice to revisit …
