Lioness on Rock at Seronera

This photo taken in the Seronera region of the Serengeti, Tanzania. There was a pride of lions (2 lionesses and 5 cubs) who clearly appeared hungry and looking for prey. We followed them for a while and then this lioness scaled this big rock to get a panoramic view of the surroundings. Unfortunately for them there was no prey nearby but as we drove on we saw a huge herd of wildebeest further ahead. I’m sure the lions found them eventually. Photo taken with Olympus OM-D EM-5, Panasonic Lumix 35-100/f2.8

The next photo was taken shortly afterwords as she was descending the rock. Photo taken with Sony A6000 and Sony 55-210 lens.

Just a quick post. This was taken by my daughter while we were visiting Ta Prohm temple near Siem Reap in Cambodia. Taken with a Olympus OM-D EM-5 and Panasonic Lumix 12-35/F2.8 lens. For the size, its a versatile and ultimately very capable combination. Processed in Lightroom.

More birds and Hong Kong Park

As I have said before, the Youde Aviary at Hong Kong Park. Went for a photo walk again a few weeks back. As always, I brought along the Olympus OM-D EM-5 and the Panasonic 100-300. Have I said before, that this is the ultimate combo (for my non Nat Geo needs) for bird photography. Up to 600mm reach, which can be hand-carried all day! Here are a couple of photos.

A walk through Hong Kong Park, November 2014

It is wonderful that I live so close to Hong Kong Park – basically a 5 minute walk down. Walking up takes slightly longer because it is uphill 🙂  It was great for the kids growing up and it continues to be a very nice place to go for photography.  The aviary is a great place for taking bird photos and walking around outside one often comes across wonderful butterflies.

I usually take the Olympus OM-D E-M5 with the Panasonic Lumix 100-300 lens. This is just a wonderful combination. The OM-D E-M5 has to go down as one of the all time classics.  For that size of body, it is a sensational combination of quality and features. The Pany 100-300 is amazing for the length it provides for the size of lens. Autofocus can hunt on occasion but its not really an issue. I usually manage to take 90%+ of the photos I want to, which trust me is amazing for a 600mm equivalent focal length. I know for a fact that I would never be able to carry DSLR gear of that size.

Here are a few photos that I took from a walk on 23 November 2014.
