Under African skies II . Another evening, another time lapse! This time from the highest point in the Mara, whilst photographing @houseinthewild flying safari shots. I had to Photoshop a lot of frames with the plane in! We had to stop a little earlier than I’d have liked (it was a long drive back!) but it’s still pretty spectacular. . #enonkishuconservancy#houseinthewild#travelphotographer#eveninglight#timelapse#timelapseart#endlesshorizon#weathersystems#cloudscapes#kenya#exploremore#syrpgenie#leefilters#whyilovekenya#maasaimara#besttimelapse

Morning herds. . Far away from the frozen rivers and polar vortex... Stephen and his family encouraging their cows out of the protection of the boma to graze throughout the day. The combination of low sun, dust and the dull sounds of cattle bells clinking is incredible. . #africanamazing#africa#maasai#morningsun#rurallife#whyilovekenya#cattle#dust#travelphotography

Sky on fire. . This was one of those evenings where the skies exploded - the rains swept lightly across the Mara, stretched out before us, and the sun painted the underside of the clouds with ever changing colours. I make no effort to hide my love of a good sundowner, and this was a glorious as it gets! Thanks to the wonderful Lippa and Tarquin @houseinthewild for looking after us like friends! . #sunsets#sundowners#outdoorliving#safaristyle#hotelphotographer#exploremore#campfire#glamping#ourdoorbar#eveninglight#maasaimara#discoveringkenya#nightcap#endoftheday#finishthedaystrong#naturelovers#picoftheday#houseinthewild#leefilters

Lentorre stars. . Just in case people started to get the impression that @lentorrelodge is actually a Manyatta (based on my recent posts) think again.. it combines private luxury with a wonderful warmth from Raaji, Kush and the whole team, and we miss them hugely when we’re not there. . #horizonpool#poolsofinstagram#luxurytraveler#lanternlight#stars#reflections#shompole#travelmore#hotelphotography#dusk#eveninglight#besthotels#hotelstyle#bestpools#lentorrelodge#whyilovekenya#africa#safaristyle

Bringing home the beef. . This was the scene we stumbled across en route to a sundowner shoot that ended up with us going back to Stephen’s village (see last post). This was a photographic dream - the evening light, the dust, interesting clouds, and a slow and drawn out subject matter... . #sunset_pics#maasai#rurallife#cattle#eveninglight#leefilters#travelphotographer#shepherd#canon#lentorrelodge#whyilovekenya#africanamazing#african_portraits#kenya#travel_captures#natgeoyourshot

Stephen’s family. . Stephen has had his (seemingly endless) patience tested on two shoots with us now, so it was lovely to have the opportunity to photograph his family this time. It seemed fine to use the light in this instance, and it really allowed us to draw out the incredible sunset that was happening in the background. . #portraitphotography#whyilovekenya#exploremore#bts#famousbtsmagazine#maasai#familyportraits#rurallife#sunsetportrait#profoto#phototips#canon#leefilters#villagelife#travelphotographer#africanportraits
