Morocco, November 2015. Just getting back. What an adventure. Nikon D800 24-120 lens. The Berber nomad pouring us tea in his tent is simply edited using Snapseed on my iPad while in Morocco.

Where in my knapsack of superlatives is there a phrase which adequately expresses my wonder and admiration for the three B & W images you've posted?

Morocco was good to you, as was the Snapseed application.

I sat here looking at your exceptional images thinking how they reminded me of the finest images that my dad pointed out to me, half a century ago, when most images were on B & W film.

The details...focus...composition — as good as it gets.

Thank you so much for sharing with Safaritalk members and visitors a glimpse of the lifestyle existing in contemporary Morocco.

With Admiration,

Tom K.

Wow! That's a visualling compelling case for the advantage of B & W imaging in certain cases.

Very nice.

Thank you.

@@PCNW I had missed these when you first posted, (along with many other things), absolutely stunning. That 1st and 3rd image would be incredible poster sized.

I love the Painted Horses of Africa - hope to see lots in Etosha in a couple of months time!

Loved seeing everyone's creations here!

 

This is a new one of mine, from last year's Great Migration safari in the Mara Triangle.

@gamewarden thank you. I rarely do but did print both. The 2nd 60 X 40 inches on canvas and it turned out better than I expected.

"The Gauntlet"

A massive wildebeest crossing as seen from the Mara Triangle.

Very few vehicles to contend with on this side of the river makes for great opportunities like this.
