Black & White Photography
A trio of African Penguins dry off on the waters edge, with one of the birds pecking the other.
The Kirstenbosch National Botanical gardens provide a tapestry of colors to photograph throughout the year. Capturing textures and detail of the many different Fynbos species, really opens up the world of this complex vegetation type.
A Crowned Guineafowl feather clings to a branch, illuminated by the early morning sun.
The Namaqua Dwarf Chameleon is endemic to the North Western region of South Africa. This chameleon was photographed in the Northern Cape in the Namaqua National Park. It is well camoflaged against the white beach sands and old shell middens.
This young Malachite Kingfisher was fishing under a bush that was hanging over the Orange River in the Richtersveld National Park. It tolerated my close presence and went about learning how to fish. As he gets older his bill will become red.
Dare to Dream Hot
The spirit of adventure is not hard to find in the Kgalgadi. In two weeks we did not miss one sunrise (or sunset for that matter) and each one seemed to out do the last. Its hard to find that "unique" perspective, but sometimes you just have to photograph what is right in front of you.
