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


Just a few from my recent trip to Kenya with Don Gutoski....we had a fabulous time with some special moments. It will take me many months to review and post process what we saw so I will be need to post some additional material including some feathered friends in upcoming threads. For now just a bit of a teaser.

Eric these are thrilling!! Wow buddy your action shots sure tell the story of what was going down and I mean down for the kill
The opening shot is a real beauty, powerful yet calming. The Star of the show is a stunning cat, oh so sweet and powerful looking. Awesome set my friend and YGMV

Eric,

These are just amazing images, each and every one had me staring wide-eyed. I’d be over the moon if these were mine, and I’m just left wondering what you have saved up if these are just teasers.

I’m just going back through them again and again, and all I can say is…

Looking forward to more.

Thanks so much Karl. We were so fortunate to have so many quality photo ops...I had hoped to get some sunset shots and we really lucked out as a storm approached. What followed was epic and I'll share in a future post if Don doesn't.

Thanks Morris.....we waited for many hours shooting static shots with no expectation that any action would ensue and then just like that 0-60 in seconds flat. It wasn't until it was over that I looked at my shutter speed and said, "phew, just enough"

Thanks John....photographing in Africa can be life changing....it has been for me for many decades now....the plains of East Africa often lends itself to some magical moments.

Great shots of Giza. She really displayed nicely for you - can see the hidden rosettes so clearly in the last one.

Olare Motorogi for the leopard cub? We were there recently and looks like it might be the same one. The cubs also look familiar. If so, looks like you got all the cheetah hunting luck we didn’t quite have - wow! Brilliant hunting shots - got to say that alongside my admiration for the shots I am a bit jealous.

Really look forward to seeing more.

Terrific set, Eric!

You caught so many instances of "simple grandeur"--those animals doing what they do every day that so many (including myself) never see. Each frame posted is a visual delight--surely with a story unto itself within the bigger story of your trip there.

You showed us some incredible moments moments--I look forward to seeing more as you work your way through them.
