2016 - THAT'S A WRAP!!!

2016 has been a year of a lot of "firsts" for me.  Having never done any travel before, I set off to visit a few places I had never seen.  I know many of you have seen these places but for me it was all a first,  so very special indeed!  My three favourite images of the year below are the ones that hold special memories for me, times I will never forget.  Just looking at each image takes me immediately back to that moment, and I remember exactly how I felt while taking that picture, making it even more special to me.  That's why I love photography so much, as it takes me instantly to that moment I was in, the sounds, the smells, the view, how inspired and alive I felt ..........

 

 

A kalahari sunrise

I recently spent a memorable 7 days in the red dunes of the kalahari and I can honestly say it was nothing short of amazing.  The vast open silent splendour of the kalahari is nothing short of breathtaking and is food for the soul for anyone wanting to escape the stress and strain of everyday life.  

 The saying "Dynamite comes in small packages" certainly came to mind  when I was lucky enough to watch this encounter between a Rhino  and a warthog recently.  On his way to the waterhole the Rhino came across the little warthog grazing.
