I just got back from a working holiday to Southern Africa. I had an amazing time and thought I would share a few photos of one of my favourite places I visited.

Those are really stunning

Only thing is: I've seen quite a few images taken in what seems to be the same location as the dead trees shot in the photo mags lately. Sometimes it seems like you go to the ends of the earth and everyone has been there before you!

Thanks for sharing, John.

Treemonkey, these are really superb shots, the third being tops, I like the shadow of the tree falling across the centre of the shot [with all the other aspects as well]. Isee what John says, however, the thing is, when you get to hang iton your wall, you get to say that it is YOUR shot :lol:Nicely Done !!

PS Did you get to the Kruger National Park at all ??

Thanks for the comments. A few people have mentioned that these photos are very similar to others they have seen. If I had been there for longer I would of tried to take some different less obvious shots but with limited time I could only take these. The world really is becoming a small place and it is hard to get somewhere where people havent been before.
But still it is amazing to go to these places, these photos really dont do it justice. I am quite looking forward to printing off the 3rd photo and putting it on the wall, I think I may try getting it printed on canvas.
As for Kruger, I spent a few days there at the start of my trip and then a week at a conference there at then end of the trip. I liked it but it was a bit too busy and I preferred Etosha National park in Namibia a bit more.
I have put up a few (well so 200) photos of the trip on my website so feel free to check them out.

Really nice stuff, especially that last one. Although I might have liked the 1st one better in landscape rather than portrait.

Cheers

TreeMonkey,

These are great shots!!!!

I would crop the first two so that the photos are cut in thirds. One third the grass, one third the sand dunes, and one third the sky.

DON'T touch number three. Post it in photo contest and blow it up and put it on the wall. It is a great shot!

Looks like a polarizer was used.. Nice job with it in number one and number three.

I often use an enhancing filter that brings out the reds. It may be something you want to look at.
