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.
Hong Kong really knows how to rock Holi!
Holi has got to be the most fun festival in the world. It’s such a blast for the whole family. It is always a bit of a toss up with the weather – unlike India, it does not fully warm up here. But today even though the day began cool, by mid-day the sun was out and made it perfect for a wet Holi. We joined a Holi party being organised at Chung Hom Kok beach. It was quite something and there were almost 2,000 people there. I had taken the Olympus TG-3. I did think about a fancier camera but haven taken those in earlier years, this year I wanted to get in the middle of the action without any real worries. So the TG-3, which is waterproof was perfect for the job.
I was quite amazed by the quality of the photos – all taken in iAuto mode. Ofcourse, there’s a certain amount of post processing but its all standard Lightroom stuff. Total time for 50+ photos? Less than 15 minutes! And that included selecting the 50 from over 150 photos to begin with.
