Quite a few new images added to the Wildlife gallery. A couple of those were ones I had forgotten to upload (you must excuse me… I had a set of over 6000 pics from my trip, and over a hundred selects). These are a few mono conversions of pretty much the only maned lion we saw on our safari. We saw loads of lionesses and young males but just this one, older and wizened male.
Besides these mono selects, I also had a wide selection of images of gazelle, wildebeest and zebras that I hadn’t uploaded. And for a change, I decided to preserve the original colour. There were moments during this trip when the lovely monotone of the endless savannah contrasted beautifully against the soft blue of the sky. The Ngorongoro Crater was another extremely photogenic site – even shots at midday were amazingly beautiful with the shimmer of the lake and the blue haze of the crater edge contrasting beautifully against the stark and semi-barren grassland.
Here is a preview of some of these images.
And our friendly neighborhood hyena!
