Roaring king

Dominant male lion roaring on the road, putting everyone in their place.
Seeing such a powerful king walking straight towards you, roaring so loud you can feel it go straight through your body, is something really special that sticks with you for the rest of your life.
Eventually he stopped about 10 meters in front of us, roaring, and then walked right passed us like we were absolutely nothing, which is exactly how you feel actually :-)

Down by the Sea, The Gambia

A Farmer walks his cows along a beach in The Gambia, West Africa. Too scared to take the better shot of them walking towards me so waited until they had passed... Taken with a 5D2 and a 85mm prime lens.

Zebu river crossing

African Wild Cat

Backside of an African Wild Cat (Felis silvestris) seen in Djoudj National Park, Senegal. I could have got a much better profile picture but when I first saw it (when it was looking directly at me) I mistook it for a domestic cat (as we were in the middle of a village) so didnt try to take a photo! Lesson learnt here...




Yellow-billed Stork

A Yellow-billed Stork (Mycteria ibis) seen in Djoudj National Park, Senegal.




Lagos - Model Mama

A lot of what I am looking for is a moment of astonishment, he says. Those moments of pure consciousness when you involuntarily inhale and say 'Wow!' Joel Meyerowitz

Monkey Business, The Gambia

I enjoyed a couple of days getting lost in the trails of the Monkey Forest in The Gambia. Part of the forest is currently being developed and apparently a lot of the monkeys have now left. There are still a lot of them around however and they are very tame (especially with the aid of peanuts). Hopefully there will still be enough room for them to roam in the years to come.

I used a wide angle lens to get up close and personal for this shot. The experience gave me an increased respect for nature photographers, it's no easy feat. Bijilo Forest Park, Serrekunda, The Gambia, West Africa.
