Some more pics from Africa :)

Very nice B&W pictures. I love your first one. Great shot.
He is very brave facing up to a bull elephant with a 70-300!

Excellent pics.


Cheers guys, EXIF reads 155mm so it was close enough ;)

my b&w from south africa
Large elephant - 135mm lens - wow! What were you thinking? You guys are brave! I would go there with my 100-400 with the 1.4x :) AND the zoom would be set at 400mm (so 560mm equivalent)...

Hi Darlip, Like them all but the first one of the Big Guy is a cracker, well done.

Here are a few from last year’s trip to Yellowstone and the Tetons:




Majestic landscape. Very nice shot.

Thank you for the kind words.  This was a very memorable event.  When I arrived the momma moose and her two calves were grazing in the river within twenty feet of several people who were already at the scene.The only downside to the day was that the mountains were almost completely obstructed by smoke from a nearby forest fire.  I have always been nervous around moose as they can get very aggressive. This momma did not care the slightest about the people nearby and she moved in so close you could hear the bubbles from her nose when she placed her head in the water.   It is these moments that keep me coming back to the Tetons and Yellowstone. The whole string of these photos can be found at:

Kindest Regards, Lloyd

Love this picture and the whole set.  One of my "photography life goals" is to take a quality picture of a moose.  I'm so fond of them I even have a moose decal on my rear windshield 8).

Great series of images for sure!  My big fear that I have to reckon with is that if I get out there anytime soon, I may never come back and my family will have to either move to this amazing wilderness or figure out how to get by without me!!   ;D
