Lightning over Jozi

Thursday, November 28th, 2013

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

A man, his dog and a fire

Friday, January 25th, 2013

I was driving out in the middle of nowhere, close to a town called Nigel here in South Africa…  I was actually trying to meet up with some people but got lost along the way and stumbled across this little scene.  Pulled my car up and spoke to the man and tried to understand his broken english…  He agreed to let me shoot some photos and even called his dog over to get involved!  I shot these photos, gave the man a candy treat and was on my way.  I love how Africa has these strange things goin on in the most un-suspecting places, all you gotta do is get off the main roads and get yourself lost.

Black & White Reflection

I shot this photo at one of the many dams in the Kruger National Park, it was a bright day out so the colors weren’t the best but I thought it worked pretty good as a Black & White image.

Kruger National Park’s Night Sky

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

I’ve been trying to capture the movement of the stars since my most early days of photography but I could never seem to get it right!  On a recent trip to the Kruger National Park, the sky was too clear to not try it again!  I found a well secluded spot in a far corner of Satara camp amongst the bushes, away from all the lights from the campsites.  I set my camera up on the tripod while the Hyenas were watching me from the other side of the fence and I shot this photo.  I left my shutter open for 35 minutes which I thought shows a good amount of movement in the stars.  Enough time to go have a shower and make some coffee!
