Thanks for the comment Shirley. Sorry to have made you late. It was a fantastic trip to Africa. I was in East Africa on photo safaris from 22 Jan to 28 Feb and visited Tanzania (Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti) for the wildebeest birthing season, Rwanda for five days of gorilla trekking, then Kenya (Samburu and Masai Mara). Then I was in South Africa from 28 Feb to 27 Mar on a self drive, and the main stops were Kruger and Kgalagadi.

I've taken a quick look at your portfolio and will be back to comment. Where did you go to pet the lion? I'll be returning to South Africa this Oct, and would love to pet a lion. I petted a couple of cheetah in Oudtshoorn on a previous trip. Do you know of a place where I could pet a leopard? That's my favorite cat.

I'll be leading a photo safari in Feb 2007 for chimps in Tanzania and gorillas in Rwanda. Let me know if you'd like to come along.

Thank you Hugo. You're right it's unusual for me --- I don't shoot "in the dark" that often.

I agree that the composition is good, but I can't really take credit for composing it. I was just tracking these two cranes and waited for good wing position. They just happened to be in a nice place with respect to the background. I suppose I can take credit for tossing the images where the composition wasn't very good though.

Thanks for letting me know I got you/us onto the front page. I usually bypass the front page and miss those kinds of things.

Yeah --- Scotty's Castle! I took a similar shot on my first visit there. I love spiral staircases, and you've done this one justice.

Wonderful image Ann. The exposure looks good to me. I agree with Gary Dyck that taking two exposures and sandwiching them would be a good way to go if you have a problem situation in the future. I also agree with Bill Morgenstern that using a polarizing filter usually does wonders for shots like this because it takes the glare, and usually cyan cast from the reflected sky, off the wet foliage. Keep up the good work. You have a great eye for waterfall and fog shots.

Another awesome shot!! The clouds sure do make it special. Great layering and soft colors. Wish I had weather like that when I've been there!

Very nice. Great low perspective and the diffuse light sure helps make images like these work.

Neat formation. I never made it to Red Rock when I lived in SoCal. Now I'll have to think about putting it on the agenda for the next time I'm out that way.

Great idea and a nice composition. The lighting sure makes the tines stand out. I wonder if a little light from the left would help make the rest of the forks stand out from the dark background.

A nice simple and effective composition with a great sense of depth from all the converging lines. I don't know if the image is tilted, but I'd prefer to have the poles be vertical.

Interesting observation Hugo. The image was shot as a vertical, and I cropped it to 4x5 to reduce the wasted space, mainly at the top as I remember. (I'm away on travel at the moment and don't have access to the original image to confirm that.) I think there's more space on the left than on the right for two reasons. First, it gives him some room to walk into the frame, and second, it was probably a convenient alignment to have one of the focus sensors on one of his eyes.

Thanks Jim. Not sure if the horizon is level, but I'm pretty sure that a plumb bob would be vertical. I wish his eye would have been clearer too. He had it closed the whole time he was standing with his head up --- probably so he wouldn't have to look into the low sun.

Thanks for the comment Ann. It sure was "very cool" --- -30F (-34C) to be precise!! Just slightly cooler than your typical down-under temperature.

I've taken a quick look at your portfolio and will be back to comment. I love your bio. Sounds like you have a travel bug too. Pleasure to make your acquaintance.

Thanks for the comment Dave. I agree that the shot would be better if you could see his eye, but he had it closed the whole time he had his head up --- I guess he didn't like looking into the low sun. I love the 500! It's sharp and fast.

Thanks Dave. This shot was perfect timing. I was diving up the main road through the park looking for targets of opportunity, and saw these trees in great light in a good setting.

I can't believe he completed the sommersault. Looks like he's about to fall on his face. Nice capture.

Love it! The steam from the man hole cover in the lower right, which is simple and separated from everything else, provides a great contrast to the rest of the scene.

Hmmm --- looks way over processed to me because the colors are way too intense and the light on the forest, especially, isn't what I'd expect to see when the clouds are lit up like that. I'm sure the scene looked spectacular, but the image looks almost like a fabrication.

Wonderful image Hugo. Love the colors in the foreground, the oranges, browns, and golds, and the clump of trees in the center that provides a second point of interest.

8 Dec sure was good Hugo. The weather was great and the wildlife was cooperative. I have two more images to post from that day.
