      Definitely different! I also was there when the trees were bare (March 2008) and I think they look better in black and white.

    I just want to thank those of you who encouraged me to get this elephant shot blown up. It’s very special because it was my first elephant sighting in the wild (Tanzania, 2017). I’m so happy with it. (I’ve just booked a trip to South Africa in November, by myself again! No one I know wants to go to Africa.) I had it printed on canvas to fit the frame we had already, 21×26″.
    ISO 640, 26 mm, f/2.8, 1/10th sec

      Looks amazing! In 2018 I went to Uganda on my own and it was an amazing experience.

      • Frankie says:

        Thanks! Yes, it is so amazing. I can’t get enough of Africa. Having hitchhiked and worked in Europe from 1972-74, I just find it so crowded now.
