Shot for the Day (03 March 2018)


This is a shot from the Serengeti in north west Tanzania. There were a load of people standing around the scene, so I found a knoll next to the small body of water that elevated me just above the height of the foliage. The water was full of hippopotamuses and crocodiles, which was another reason I wanted to put some height between me and them.

Several tourists stood perilously close to the edge of the water, even though they had been expressly told by their guide not to do so, putting them in the perfect position for a croc to grab a late snack.  I kept my camera poised for an action shot…

Shot for the Day (14 April 2017)

The waters around La Palma island are pretty rough.  Not a location for beach swimming.  Behind where I took this shot was a swimming pool hewn from the natural rocks and filled by the sea, called La Fajana.  I took this shot, looking out to sea, from a platform about 4m about the surf.  The occasional wave still managed to lap my feet the swell was that rough.
