Abstract

Like liquid Grafitti, colourful reflections from Fishing boats docked at Kalk Bay Harbour dance on the surface of the water. Influenced by tidal movement or passing boats the reflections transform the water surface into a continuous array of colourful patterns, of varying shapes sizes. Abstract is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and abstract images of the reflections are my response to the prompt.

Dinnertime

As the Sun descends towards the horizon, visitors on game drives in the Kgalagadi National Park start heading back to the Camps to ensure they get there before the gates close. The desolate camps are suddenly a hive of activity as everybody starts preparing dinner. More than likely this will be a open fire braai outside the chalet or tent as may be the case. Shortly after Dinner, the camp is quiet again as everybody gets some well deserved sleep, prior to waking up at the crack of dawn to head out for game drives as the next day dawns. Dinnertime is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the activity around the campsite at this time are my response to the prompt.

Future

The recent rains in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park have turned the semi arid Park into a Park that provides an abundance of feeding for its numerous animals. Healthy looking, well fed animals can be seen everywhere, both amongst the predators and the prey. I had an opportunity to photograph some of the youngsters, parents of future generations of their spcecies, assuming they can stay away from the numerous predators in the Park. Future is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of some younger generations of prey are my response to the prompt……….

Landscape

Storm clouds gather over the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, bringing promise of some welcome rain. During my recent visit to the Park, temperatures raced from a mere 9 degrees before sunrise to beyond 30 degrees within hours.
Situated in the Northernmost corner of the Northern Cape, and incorporating area within Botswana and Namibia, this arid to semi arid climate receives it’s rarely more than 100mm per annum of rainfall in summer, mostly falling during heavy thunderstorms.
It wasn’t long before the dramatic clouds were joined by thunder and lighting, and the inevitable rainstorm. Before long it was all over and transformed the arid landscape into one what appeared like a wetland with wonderful reflections of the 180deg rainbow overhead.
Landscape is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images before and after the storm are my response to the prompt.

Half-Light

A time of Transition, between night and day, between darkness and daylight, between blues of the night and oranges of the morning, and the moments of half-light in between.
Half Light is the prompt on the Photo Challenge this week, and images of this transition prior to Sunrise at Muizenberg Beach are my response to the prompt……..

Dance

Like Ballet Dancers arriving on stage for a performance these Ostriches on a farm near Caledon ran towards me as I got out of my car alongside the fence. As they got closer the moving heads of so many birds with backlighting, in close proximity could easily have been a well choreographed Dance:-)

Dance is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week and images of the Ostriches are my response to the prompt…..

One Love

Bob Marley’s “One Love” asked “What about – ? Let’s get together and feel all right”, perhaps we can take a few cues from the Animal Kingdom:-)
One love is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge, and images of interaction between animals from my recent game drives are my response to the prompt…
