We’re back in our home country, so I’m back to posting the photo of the week. From hereon in (partially as an excuse to go through more of our trip photos), I’ll also be including a tiny gallery to give you more context, or insight, or just more photos.
This week, we’re looking at elephants on the Zambezi during our canoe trip in Zambia. We managed to get pretty close to a few later on to get some sharper shots (as you can see below), but Moreno snapped the feature image of the elephants over the grass while I was afraid to even look in their direction, and I love how dreamy and hazy the photo came out.
Note: There was no colour editing done on the photos. The grays and greens always came out a bit heavier and deeper in Zambia for some reason.
To celebrate this week’s Canada Day and Fourth of July, I thought I’d post something from a bit closer to home.
Last year, I celebrated my first Fourth of July ever just over the border in Point Roberts, Washington. I set up the tripod and played around with placement, exposure and timing until I got it just right.
The Mekong River is a source of life for everyone that lives within its reach. On Si Phan Don, the Four Thousand Islands in the very south of Laos, the locals would join the tourists on the river. Unlike the tourists, the locals were there to fish, and everyone, even the children would do their part.
I’m in love with this photo – new desktop wallpaper!
Just a sweltering 45 minute bike ride away from the guest houses in the Si Phan Don islands in Laos, is southeast Asia’s largest waterfall by volume. Millions of liters of water per second are said to cascade down the Khon Phapheng Waterfalls, with the highest flow recorded being 49,000,000 litres.
Aren’t the colours surreal? No editing on this one!
