I decided to do a Friday afternoon drive in the park yesterday. I haven't been into the park for a while now, more so in the afternoon. The light is great at this time of day, but unfortunately there were no real wow sightings.

Shikumbu in the late afternoon light, a shot that I would not normally take.

Image

The day was for Giraffe and Elephant, there was not much else to photograph. :-(

Two young ones...

Image

Golden hour light on this one...

Image

This was a bit more difficult, shooting into the light...

This chap was in a rush to get to his favourite drinking spot...
