Nature photographers often end up with a lot of free time on trips, whether it’s on airplanes or when the weather’s bad. While there’s often work to be done editing images or writing, sometimes you just can’t work anymore and want a break. Personally, I like to read in my down time. Yet between the weight of my camera bag and the weight of my computer bag, I never wanted to take more than one book with me on a trip and would often end up reading very slowly or re-reading my book. After my trip to Africa, I’ve definitely come to love my Kindle!
We just got back from a fantastic trip to Africa, and you can see the images in the Gallery. There were three distinct parts to the trip: sharks in South Africa, a game reserve, and an abandoned diamond mining town in Namibia. Each was incredibly distinct and provided some great photographic opportunities!
