Cracking image. What was the post processing treatment? Look forward to seeing more of your images on Safaritalk bushbaby. And, to save uploading images in this way, have a look at the instructions in my signature line. Matt.

A couple I've shared before just to keep the ball rolling!

No river crossings I'm afraid, but did get a couple of shots of the herds during our balloon ride over the Mara.

Some migration pictures from the last two years. Still have to process the ones I got in Masai Mara this August. Though the river crossings this season were not as spectacular as they were last year, for me.

Not really a picture - This is a time lapse video shot near the Lookout Hill in Masai Mara this August.

Who has more Great Migration images to upload? I've seen quite a few in the trip reports but not here...

Taken at one of the Paradise crossing points from the Triangle side. I used a 1DX with 300mm 2.8 II + 2x III extender on a beanbag. We were poorly positioned and watching the crossing point to our front when they started crossing out of sight to our rear, but we could hear them go, so a quick move of the vehicle... facing the other way allowed me to capture this shot.

Mara River, Northern Seregeti 2015

 

Perhaps not as dramatic a crossing as some others, but still a crossing!!

In 2012 I had the privilege of seeing parts of the Great Migration including a couple of Mara River crossings near Mara Serena Lodge and Governor's Camp.  This video includes a croc attack.  Not the highest quality video but you can get an idea...
