p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Leopard ascent in golden light.


Just arrived back from Selous & Ruaha- Tanzania, where the wildlife and majestic baobab landscapes did not disappoint
I could almost say it rivals my most fav wildlife destination the Sth Luangwa, it's that good.
This image here is one I've always hoped may come along, on this trip to Ruaha, I certainly got my wish as I was lucky enough to experience many sightings of leopards ascending & descending in all types of lighting conditions,
even sunrise/sunset silhouettes.
I've included the palm as it provides some context, interested to see what others feel?
I would have preferred slightly more room above, but that might be greedy. ISO1600/8000s was not intentional, but in the heat of battle.

D700 80-400 AF-S ISO 1600 1/8000s f/6.3 @ 80mm, 20% crop.

Ruaha NP- Tanzania Oct 2013.

C & C most welcome

Cheers
Marc

Excellent image Marc!! The palm is just fine. Making the image a bit more vertical (and skinnier) by cropping out the blue in the lower left might be interesting.

Yes, had considered that, and would suit also.
