  • Images From BCR, July 2018

    Thanks to all of you. I appreciate the comments -- it keeps me working on improving my technique. But . . . it's just all in fun, makes travelling a lot more fun. After awhile, you begin to SEE differently -- it begins to occur to you how the camera sees and how you can optimize that. But, besides composition and light, what's important is to figure out when to press the shutter -- when does the frame have the most emotional impact, and what can you do to get that impact (e.g. move yourself up, down, right, left -- zoom in, zoom out -- get the right lip and facial expression). I've included a couple of new images -- the RCMP was giving us a talk on his 40 or so years with the force. So the problem was capturing the right expression, lighting, etc. while he was speaking. So, those are some hints on how you might improve your own skills. Doug

    Today we relocated from the Four Seasons to Amboseli. Four forty-five wakeup, to fly to Arusha, then drive to Naranga, then new safari vehicles to Amboseli. Arrived at around three, and went on safari at 4:30 to 6:30. Saw a ‘parade’ of around thirty elephants in addition to numerous other creatures Fantistic! So far this trip has been five times better than our first K&T four years ago. Heavy seasonal rain impact is obvious to those who have been here before. Parts of the approaches look like they were hit by a hurricane. But I think the animals love it. We on the other hand ‘forded’ our way in, with the vehicle makeing a lot of use of the elevated exhaust system ... bottom under water.

    Wow, we went about a month earlier, 13 June, 2015, and had no rain nor any signs of recent or heavy rain! Seth said the rains had been later that year and speculated it may have confused some of the animals because we saw a mini-migration of wildebeest and zebra in the Serengeti. It sounds like the rains this year were heavier and even later. Amboseli which is (high plains?) low land and a former lake bed still had plenty of watering holes and marshy areas, however. Could global warming be affecting the weather patterns in Africa?

I just returned from some weeks in the wilderness, and I am still buzzing and glowing from the charge of being immersed in nature. I know that we’re always really immersed in nature, even in the city. But I think we city folk need to periodically get away from the artificial environments to remove our blinders and really look at the world we'...

Polar Bear: The distinctly identifying white fur of polar bears is in fact an optical illusion. Beneath their thick coat, polar bears actually have black skin! Their hollow fur is translucent and only appears white because it reflects visible light, just like snow. Climate also plays a role in the coloration of polar bear fur. Where colder temperat...
