Landscape photography

There should be sunshine after rain, these things have always been the same so why worry now.  Not only a great song but wise advice for photographers ? The weather has been mad here with a mixed bag of sun, rain, wind and hail so as soon as a storm looks as if it’s peaking […]

Star photography

So here’s the question – which of the following 2 photos do you prefer ? The top one is a long exposure of 1.5 hours which shows how the stars have moved during this time … it’s not been Photoshopped in any way but looks a tad unrealistic ? Or the bottom photo is just […]

Shoebill Uganda

Shoebill Uganda Today I’ve been canoeing in the Mabamba swamp, Uganda during one of my Uganda mountain gorilla holidays. Mabamba is one of the best places in the world to see the elusive Shoebill.

Kidepo national park

Kidepo national park which straddles South Sudan and Northeast Uganda was voted Africa’s best national park recently and after my recent visit I can see why. Framed by cardboard cutout mountains on three sides this place melts your heart with its sheer beauty – but best of all, you’ll virtually have the place to yourself. […]
