Photos after dark

Sherry and I have taken a number of photos after dark on night safaris. In fact I've really begun to like this type of photography. We've found that the use of spotlights (only allowed on predators) produces a neat photo. We've had mixed results with flash due to the eye reflection, even holding the flash off the camera. I hope that you enjoy these photos, all shot in the greater Kruger area. I may take an infafed camera to africa this year to see how this would work out. Let us know what you think.

I love these photos

The photos pop against the black background and the spotlight is not too bright so that it burns out the details.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
