New, funny, harassed, well light and rocky!

A good morning drive on Ithala. I encountered …

… a new species (for me :-)): An antelope named Tsessebe, which I have never seen before.

… and an exciting drive on a very rocky 4×4 trail.

  1. So exciting, Christian! Are you out on your own for these drives, or do you have a companion? Also, is there radio/communication service where you are? These locations look like such an adventure!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, I am alone on these photography trips. Anyone but a serious photographer would get very bored with me sitting around in one spot for a long time. In some of the areas I have phone reception, in some I do not. That is part of the adventure 🙂

  2. Beautiful sights and wonderful shots! The rocky trail brought back my adventures in the wild…have driven on many of these trails and now feel like “home sick”…

  3. Some amazing photos lovely sunrise one.

  4. Tsessebe are really, really hard to photograph this close up because they are so shy and elusive. Impressive photos, thank you.
