As some of you may know, the trip mentioned in my last blog post was to Botswana. I’ll say right here, Botswana is a great wildlife photography destination (the very first subject I photographed was a leopard, not a bad way to start!). Toward the end of the trip I had the opportunity to spend one afternoon in a “bunker blind” at an elephant waterhole.
Looks like that elephant in the last photo is coming to get you.
We have all seen images of elephants with super telephotos – elephants that are far away. However, these images are interesting to me because of the wide angle lens used and the awfully close shooting distance. I guess this is where the bunker blind comes in handy. Thank you, John, you continue to inspire us.
Great shots, the WA is really an interesting choice. It’s probably very intense to see such big animals from that ground perspective !!!
What a killer perspective with the wide angle lens low to the ground. The last two photos are my favorite of the series!
