My favourite Wildlife Photos ...

This is what I enjoy best while on safari in Africa, taking wildlife photos. Other people may enjoy hunting safaris, but me,  I enjoy the thrill of the hunt through the lens of a camera. To take a picture of an animal in it's natural surroundings is to capture some of that magic and to take  along with you wherever  life's journey may take you.

I am a sucker when it comes to reflections in the water. I love to take wildlife photos with their images reflecting on the water...

Monochrome and sepia photography is a medium that I am experimenting with. I like the dramatic effects that are possible with black and white photography. Nick Brandt is an absolute master of black and white photography. You can view his stunning portfolio here.

Now let's go the other end of the scale. Macro photography opens up a completely new world.
