It is with great excitement that I learnt of my runner up in the Animals in Nature Category in this years Fuji Getaway 2011 Wildlife Photographic Awards.
It is the second year in a row that I have managed to win an award in this prestigious competition along with some of Southern Africa’s top wildlife and landscape photographers .I must congratulate all of them on there achievements and also the Fuji / Getaway Awards for this event . The image chosen was titled “Hidden Danger”. I have also compiled a short insight into this image and how it was captured .
In May/June of this year a dream road trip became a reality and I journeyed through Namibia exploring and experiencing it’s true beauty. Part of my stay was 6 days in the south west of the Etosha National Park . If you listen to all the experts they will tell you that its not the greatest time to go there and one must concentrate on the driest months to ensure that the game are all congregated around the waterholes and the predators are plentiful around this. I could not do this so I planned to be a little more creative and covered a large area during each day to find and enjoy the unique wildlife of Etosha .
