If you have never pencil’d in a trip to the Maasai Mara in Kenya …

Ugandan Kob – Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Nearing the end of our 21 day African trip, my wife and I spent 2 days in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda . This turned out to be one of the most fantastic parks I’ve ever visited with a lot of different wildlife to the norm in South Africa. For me one of the highlights of this park was the spectacular scenic vista’s throughout the park set against the most stunning and pristine grasslands. …

African Stormy Sunset – Thunderstorm Lightning Photography

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 …

Another Maasai Mara Sunrise, Kenya

I decided this morning it would be time for some colour amongst all the black and white / monochrome images of late. This sunrise taken in the Maasai Mara turned out to be quite spectacular. As with all landscape photography light is constantly changing and one shoot can produce a number of very different images and this was one such morning. The open plains and vista’s of the Maasai Mara are so photogenic, you just …

Eye On The Hunt – New Print Release

Today I’ve released another print in my growing Maasai Mara Fine Art Wildlife Collection. Cheetah‘s are no doubt the king’s of speed on the grassland plains of the Maasai Mara. The Mara provides the most ideal setting for Cheetah where they can often be found out in the open uncluttered by trees, shrubs or any other obstacles. This Cheetah, part of a group of 3, sat gazing off into the distance no doubt looking for …

Stealth Hunter – New Print Release

Another image release in my new collection of prints from the Maasai Mara. Leopards (Panthera pardus) truly are stealth hunters and are very agile in all aspects. We spent a while tracking this leopard on a morning drive in the Maasai Mara and it turned out to be quite entertaining. We watched this beautiful cat stalk some Dik-Dik’s who turned out to be far too clever for this leopard and quickly darted off into the …
