And so it begins, a two week landscape photography tour with a couple of my favourite photographers, Christian Fletcher and Nick Rains, and twelve other wonderful photographers who helped make this a very special journey for me. Stunning scenery, wildlife, more stunning scenery, more wildlife and one on one time with Christian and Nick plus the never ending supply of food.
Fish River Canyon
The second largest canyon in the world (the Grand Canyon in Arizona is the largest) is pretty spectacular but I found it rather difficult to photograph. The enormity of it was overwhelming, so a little help from Nick and Christian was appreciated to get me started. Individual cottages lined up along the rim of the canyon was our accommodation for the next few nights.
Our accommodation at Fish River Canyon was in individual cottages lined up along the rim of the canyon. The cottages branched out either side of the restaurant, reception, deck and pool area. As the front of the cottages were glass fronted the view was incredible. A brilliant coloured sunset greeted us on our first evening. After that night the wind picked up to a howling gale and we quickly found out why there were no internal doors in the room. They also provided earplugs with the room key for those that had trouble sleeping with wind noise.
Our days here here at the canyon filled with landscape photography, editing and a game drive for those that wished to. We went looking for the Mountain Zebra. Unfortunately the Zebra were not to be found but we did come across Springbok and Oryx. Here’s a couple of pics from this location.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy seeing some of my trip to Namibia.
