I am now sitting here in Jomo Kenyatta Airport tapping away in the bustle of the airport after a nice meal with my good friend ‘Chui’ from Bush and Beyond. Sorry the lack of update yesterday, completely due to exhaustion on my part! 🙂 Needed sleepy sleeps.
David from out group was super keep on backlit images (as am I if you hadn’t noticed!) so after our now customary fruitless hunt for the usually obliging Acacia (the littlest Leopard!) we headed back to a group of Cheetahs we saw that morning. We arrived well in time for the last 20 mins of sunset and positioned ourselves into the light and waited. They were initially in the (infuriating!) long grass. Several other vehicles were trying to work around it, getting in close but that would yield nothing special so I made the call to wait.
Low and behold we were treated to a great walking sequence. We managed some great shots (David has a cracking running shot from this session). Despite some starter troubles with our Land Cruiser that day (for some reason it decided to pack up randomly, behaving more like a Land Rover, wink..) we got a welcome nudge from another camp’s vehicle and we rolled down the hill in time for more shots!
Below is the result as well as some others from the day, I hope you enjoy!!! As usual these are with 50 seconds each in Lightroom on my laptop, so any slightly off processing… please forgive me 🙂
Many thanks all, heading through the the sparse departure lounge soon, so more updates tomorrow!
We also still have a few places left on our 2013 Great Migration Tour this September if you care to see all this for yourself, tutored by yours truly.
