Sometimes I see a picture and get an idea for a new blogpost. This one was kicked off by the Addo Elephant Park. I flipped through my Lightroom gallery and looked for some "epic light" shots. Hope you like this little collection and let me know if anything looks familiar to you.
Climbing Ayers Rock, Australia, August 2001
You can easily see that these pictures at the start of my list are the oldest. They are film and diapositives from 2001 in Australia. We spent six weeks down under in Australia and New Zealand with a field trip from university and kicked it off with the red centre before joining the group. We climbed Ayers Rock (or "Uluru" as the Aborigines call it) on an early and very windy morning. Afterwards the sun came out and we circled the famous Australian inselberg. A stunning place to stand on top off and the first example for my best guided tours.
Egypt is a paradise for street photography. I went to Egypt for the first time in November 2014 with my best friend and we spent 10 days there. We started in touristy Giza, made our way through the oases of the Western Desert, spent some days in ancient Luxor and Thebes and finally got back to Cairo again.
With our own car, driver and guide we were able to stop wherever we saw a picture. Since most of the scenes in rural Egypt look very different to European eyes we stopped quite a lot. Enjoy my street photography along the road.
