Hyena Pup in the rain.

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Always stop and chat to other people when driving around in the Kruger National Park.  They’ll tell you what they’ve seen and where it is…  Sometimes people go as far as even setting their odometers to zero so that they can measure the exact distance to a sighting.  We’ve seen a lot of cool stuff that way and it can be a life saver when you’ve been driving around all day and seen nothing.  This little Hyena Pup was hanging around his den on a rainy afternoon and it was thanks to some friendly tourists that we got to spend some time with him and watch him running around and interacting with vehicles around him.  At one point, he was even under our car and then he was licking water off one of my car’s mud flaps.  These are some of the shots I took him before and after he got wet in the rain.

Johannesburg is known for it’s awesome lightning storms and last night was no exception.  From our balcanoy you can watch as the storms approach and get louder and louder.  These are some shots I took of a storm as it made it’s way over downtown Johannesburg towards our side of town last night

Lightning through a Windshield

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

I recently drove up to the northern Limpopo Province with my friend Simon to shoot some pictures with him.  We were supposed to spend the night up there and drive home the next day, instead, we drove back down the same day!  We hit this storm on the way back down, it was definitely one of the most insane storms I have ever seen!  These are some of the shots I took with my Canon G11, set up on my dashboard with 15 second shutter speeds.  I really love how these came out!
