Congratulations to kdacharya for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


Hi All,
I visited my birth country after almost 6 decades and it did not disappoint
We visited Amboseli, Nakura, Naivasha and Masai Mara (Zebra Plains and Mara Eden). What I love about Africa (Kruger, Kalahari, Botswana, and now Kenya) is the light and this visit was was no exception.
Seeing Nisha's golden light shots has prompted me to share some from my recent trip
Some of the salient aspects of the trip
1. Made many friends
2. The sunrise and sunsets are to die for
3. Wide open spaces in the parks
4. Lions dominate the Masai Mara park, elephants dominate Amboseli
5. Masai and the other cultures are fascinating
6. All days brought surprises.

Superb KD. Elephants and hot air balloons is an unusual and effective image. The second is my top pick yet every image is super.

What a gorgeous set, KD!! It's interesting that Steve's images were totally different - I guess you have a gazillion of unprocessed photos somewhere. Voted and looking forward to more photos from this amazing trip!!
