Mt. Kenya from Samburu to the Northeast

Photographed at 7:53 am on 29 April, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

ISO 200, 1/2000 sec., f/5, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


During each of three stays at the Samburu Sopa Lodge I've enjoyed looking to the southwest from the open-air breakfast table, as Mt. Kenya is visible nearly every morning.

If eating an early breakfast, rosy-pink hues on the summit appear before daylight has fully appeared. Mt. Kenya's craggy peak stands out from the otherwise gently sloped ridges.

View Into the Great Rift Valley

Photographed at 9:30 am on 2 May, 2015 on the road to Narok, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and a Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 ZE lens.

ISO 500, 1/500 sec., f/11, 100mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure from a moving Toyota mini-van.


After a brief rest stop at the Great Rift Valley Overlook, we drove along the highway which descends along the escarpment wall. This image image was made a few minutes prior to reaching the valley floor.

There had been ample rainfall in the preceding weeks, resulting in healthy vegetation. It was the most green drive to Narok of the six safaris which had taken me along that road.

I think there are some recent mountain and volcano images that can be added to this topic?

Africa is probably more known for Tafelberg that any other mountain found in this country - and Cape Town wont be Cape Town without.
