Throwback Thursday: last year in Namibia

black-backed jackal (Lupulella mesomelas) / Schabrackenschakal

 

I met this handsome predator a few times. They prowl alone through the land, always looking for prey.

Monochrome Monday 9-08

Shortly after sunrise at the Fish river canyon in Namibia. While waiting for the sun to crawl higher so that the light was able to reach the remaining parts (poodles) of the water. At that time, the term canyon was right. But, where was the river? The river took a rest. Will be back in the next rain period.

Nevertheless, while waiting, that other car came along raising a huge body of dust from the dry road. Back in the summer of 2020, I was able to see similar situations in Iceland. When seeing such only every now and then, it’s quite impressive. But, I’m glad to not have such each day. On the other hand, when mankind is unwilling to change its style of living, we will definitely see such everywhere on our globe on a regular base.

Here, the low-standing sun makes an interesting scene. But, when the sun dries out the country, nothing remains than stones and dust.

It’s sometimes hard to find images fitting to a certain challenge. For these tasks, I’m using the help of Excire Foto. I told the software where my image library is located and it starts analyzing the images. It recognizes the main colors in the images as well as the contents (what is in the images) and tags them automatically. Later, I can use the user interface to search for images with certain tags. Currently, you can save a few bucks when ordering Excire Foto, because it’s on sale.

Today, I really encourage you to enlarge the image by clicking on it. This panorama is assembled from 22 single images. A panorama was necessary to capture the enormous size of this canyon. It’s not the first huge canyon (the 3rd image) I stood above but comparing the size of the canyon with the little water in the river at the ground it feels like standing on the moon.

Unfortunately, the river became nearly invisible after the sun climbed higher to enlight the ground of the canyon,

Some of you might already have seen this image on Instagram. It was so great to be able to have the cheetah coming so close to me and accepting me as a distant visitor (literally he was simply ignoring me, and that was perfectly fine)

In this image, I really, really love how the low standing sun models the body of this beautiful cat. Thus, the monochrome version is much nicer than the color version.

Throwback Thursday: orxy antelope

oryx antelope

Although they seem very intense colored with the strong and distinct bars on their face, body, and legs, when looking at them directly, they vanish easily in their surroundings in the Kalahari desert and where else you spot them in Namibia. Regardless if the landscape is gray or reddish, they merge with the background. It’s really fascinating.

The first image was taken at 8:45 a.m. The second at 6:30 a.m. and the third at 8:40 a.m.

 

The last one is taken at 11 a.m. Do you find the second oryx in the image?

As usual, click on an image to enlarge it.

Take care!
