There are those occasions on safari when instead of photographing animals, the vast serenity of the place, catches your eye.
I took this picture at the end of a long day, having been up at dawn witnessing constant animal drama and on my back to the lodge for dinner.
My watercolour painting of Elephants at Tarangire. Based on material photographed during an unforgettable visit to this Tanzanian National Park.
We set out early one morning in the Serengeti when suddenly I saw this big herd of Elephants below us. I shouted for our driver to stop and managed to get a photograph with a long lens. They were at a distance and I steadied the camera on the jeep roof and begged the other occupants to sit still!
This is an oil painting of that scene.
My oil painting of a pride of lions at Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. The background including the two baobab trees is drawn from a photograph. The lions and cubs inserted from various photographs I’ve taken over the years.
I photographed this African Buffalo Bull in the Serengeti, Tanzania. He gave me that ‘don’t mess with me’ look, leading me not to hang around too long, afterwards!
I watched this family for a while at the Tarangire National Park, Tanzania. The cubs scragged their mother until she’d had enough; clipped one round the ears and it was after that I took this picture. She can be seen telling them, in no uncertain terms, to behave themselves!
