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.

Holi in Hong Kong

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.
