Well, he posted the picture didn't he ;)

But seriously Mick, could you describe how you took the picture and lived to post it?

White horses of The Camargue

This looks great, but, and I'm just curious, is this a Photo ?? that you have taken, or a construct of some sort, if it's an image what a corker, really. I imagine your now in hospital trying to get unflattened.

Cheetah in Quivertree Forrest, Namibia.

600D

Cheetah by Darlip, on Flickr

Very nice Darlip, It's unusual colouring for a Cheetah, but I've noticed that in namibia with Giraffe as well, seem to have much darker colouring than say East/Southern Africa, clearly you also liked it as I note you use it for your  Avatar. I'm out to Namibia again in March 2014 to spend 3 weeks shooting the Himba, well, not exactly "Shooting" the Himba, Photographing the Himba, most Beautiful People in Africa, I'de Post one of my Himba Lady shots bit last time I did the Moderator pulled it down after about 30 Minutes.

Hi all, thanks for the kind comments. Im ok didnt get ran over. Came bloody close though on a few occassions.The horse pic is a horse pic, its not a construction of 20 images as im not clever enough to do that but you have given me an idea....hmmmm!!!. I was with some fellow photographers and the guy who ran it told me all the horses in the Camargue are owned by someone. Some live on farms others out in the marshland. Anyhow, heres a one to show how close they got and where using a 1D series really came in handy. Standing in a marsh with my waders when they ran past wasnt my cleverest idea. Still doing stupid stuff for a picture is something we all on here appreciate. My wife on the other hands just thinks we're all nuts. Ive kept the best stuff for my little web site.

Work in progress.  Green tree boa - working on a print and down rez it.  Sharpening set for a print, not a screen/web.  In other words, I know it over sharpened.

Cheetah in Quivertree Forrest, Namibia.

Very nice Darlip, It's unusual colouring for a Cheetah, but I've noticed that in namibia with Giraffe as well, seem to have much darker colouring than say East/Southern Africa, clearly you also liked it as I note you use it for your  Avatar. I'm out to Namibia again in March 2014 to spend 3 weeks shooting the Himba, well, not exactly "Shooting" the Himba, Photographing the Himba, most Beautiful People in Africa, I'de Post one of my Himba Lady shots bit last time I did the Moderator pulled it down after about 30 Minutes.

Cheers, not sure the colours are a true match as I did the PP on my uncalibrated laptop as I'm currently working abroad and now the LR lib is back home. I do however remember that  this and another male were darker than the female cheetah below.

I hope I will also get the chance to go back this or next year to Namibia as I still have the Northwest region to explore, Epupa and the Himbas. Had to rethink my route when I was there last year as I hoped to cover more, but time was going way to fast.

Did 6500km driving in 3.5 weeks through Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana and some days in the bush one could not add many Ks on the meter. But I wanted to get a general sense of where I would like to go again and spend more time thats why I went for the gladiator drive...

Now I know that Kaokoland and Khaudum is priority in Namibia and then I would love to spend more time in the Okavango in Botswana, cant wait to try my luck again with the 4x4 on the roads there ;)

With regards to the Himbas I'm not that conservative, perhaps its because I'm a Swede. In my opinion its like hiding the NG magazines behind the counter. This is part of their culture and they even go shopping groceries like that...

Well I think these are just brilliant, especially the earlier one with all the Horses spread out coming right at you, Honestly looks surreal and the B&W absolutely is the way to show these Images, great stuff you should be justifiably proud of these.

Looks Dangerous, But love the colour & seems spot on for sharpness to me.

Might give you a squeeze, but not venomous
