This is my last post from a wonderful trip to the western corridor of the Serengeti with CNP Safaris. A big thank you Lou Coetzer for showing us the way and when possible getting us into the right position. Your invaluable advice is always treasured.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
Rather the putting too many words to the images, I thought for a change the images can talk for themselves but I like the quotes so there is a sprinkling of quotes among the images.
The colour and light intensity was variable due to the overcast and sometimes stormy conditions on many of the days. There was also a green hue reflected off the grass which gave some of the images a slightly green tinge. Rather than trying to adjust each image to look the same in terms of the quality of light I decided to leave each as it was.
“I am forever chasing light. Light turns the ordinary into the magical.”~Trent Parke
“Out in the wilderness you adapt to the light, not the other way around. Do not fight it, rather use it. Look for new ways to take a photograph perhaps to show different, more subtle and more interesting nuances.”~ Mike Haworth
“You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But. above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” ~ George Eastman
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” ~ Henry Miller
“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” – Martin Buber
“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.”~ Anthony J. D’Angelo
“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
“Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.” ~ Roman Payne
“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” ~ Pat Conroy
Explore, seek to understand, marvel at its inter-connectedness and let it be.
Have fun, Mike
