Explore the Magic of the Kalahari / Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park
Our Tour dates are: 22 February – 05 March 2021

The Wildlife Photo tour will be a small group of 4/5 persons. The Kalahari / Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is located north of South Africa, bordering Namibia and Botswana. This National Park was officially established in the year 2000. South Africa’s Kalahari Gemsbok National Park merged with Botswana’s Gemsbok National Park. The magic of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is magnificent. It consists mainly of red dunes as well as unique desert-adapted animals make this a truly magical place. It is well-known among wildlife and landscape photography enthusiasts. Thanks to the waterholes along two riverbeds, wild animals come and go. The wildlife makes their way down from the corrugated dunes to the river canyon. Of course, they are in need to quench their thirst. This is big cat territory. These two dry riverbeds act as the best corridor for the Kalahari lions and are the best places to see them on the hunt for their prey.

When bad weather is good

Autumn in the Uncompahgres

PpBL-0003Evening light fades with a few clouds, doesn’t seem too threatening so off to bed. Sometime in the night it starts with the wind rustling and sighing through the trees. Then there is a swishing and scampering across the camper roof as if an assemblage of mice were dancing, probably the wind scattering leaves. The gusts get stronger and other than the sound of wind the night becomes silent. First light comes late and seems subdued but we are in a high mountain valley surrounded by higher peaks, the sun always seems overdue. A look outside is at first a shock and then the giddy realization, snow! Just a few inches, 3 or 4 but enough to transform the fall beauty we came to photograph into something more magical. There is an adage that tells us that bad weather makes for good photography. Does it? As in all things it depends on what the subject is and what the photographer is trying to capture.

Bison at Risk

Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth [Bradypus variegatus]Like so many of our wildlife brethren, the bison in and around Yellowstone National Park are at risk due to the politics of the last several years. They are systemically being destroyed for various reasons that the powers that be would rather you not know and publicly for false ones. Dan Brister of the Buffalo Field Campaign has written a wonderful but brutally honest book “In the Presence of Buffalo” that is short and with touches of sweet and not so sweet accounts of those on the front line attempting to save these gentle giants. Please visit our blog or go to www.BuffaloFieldCampaign.org to learn more and perhaps help however you can.

Wildfires in the West

Duckett Fire
Buy this picture
Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth [Bradypus variegatus]Climate change, drought, pine beetle infestations are all contributing to the wildfires plaguing the western United States. Which came first is the question although the majority of scientists around the world tend to agree that climate change is the major component contributing to the forest fires we are experiencing here in the west. Colorado, where we live, has been particularly hard hit this year and last and our eyes, noses and lungs as well as the homes lost around Colorado Springs can attest to it. Fortunately for the moment, our rains have finally arrived, during what we call the summer “monsoons” and although not enough to get us out of the drought conditions just yet, we are rejoicing in the relief we feel when a little bit of the wet stuff falls each day now, the vegetation appears to be coming back to life and we can breath a little easier. The pictures here are of the fire that burned the year before last in the Wet Mountain Valley (not so wet now) just south of our home and the slurry being dropped by the courageous fire-fighting pilots. This fire was started by a careless camper and burned over 4000 acres; a small one compared to those that have burned and continue to burn in Colorado and Arizona today.

Trouble in Paradise

Bison [Bison bison]

Something very ugly has been happening in Montana near the Yellowstone National Park boundary. Over the past few years the Montana Division of Livestock, US Park Service and the Department of Agriculture (APHIS) have been capturing, hazing, killing and experimenting on the last wild bison in the US. The bison in Yellowstone National Park are the descendents of the few survivors of the attempted extirpation of the bison in the late 1800s.

Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea) flying over sunlit waterThe flower Wood Cranesbill or Woodland Geranium (Geranium sylvaticum) is called Midsommarblomster in Sweden because it blossoms around Midsummer here. In this photography the petals are glowing in the low sun of a summer night in northern Sweden.

Going at a different pace

Arctic tern (Sterna paradisaea) flying over sunlit waterThis sign warning of horse-drawn carriages can be found in Nordingrå at the Swedish High Coast. It’s a peaceful undulating landscape: small villages, fields and forests interwoven into an intricate pattern close to the coast of the Baltic Sea.
