Great stuff. Visited Tsavo and Amboseli a few years ago ... Best holiday ever. Thanks for bringing back good memories with your picture sets.

Must have been quite a trip.

Side-tracked is also my favourite of this fine set, and His Majesty is displaying an awesome set of tusks.
Mt Kilimanjaro's broad base is the backdrop of Side-tracked, taken on the plains of Amboseli. Don't know the name of the mountain in the first image, but it's definitely not Kilimanjaro.

Just fabulous, well done to me. The differences in processing between shots is just fine with me.

Just luvin' DYXUM.

Thank you for that piece of information, Jozioau.

The pictures were taken on different days and I did let the camera choose white balans. But I could improve my knowledge of the use of colour in post processing....

One more fan of "Side tracked" - love the compo and colors Also "In to the sunset" shows great texture on the skins.. actually all in this series look amazing. Very good series, TFS Addy .

Great set of images. You have really found the sweet spot of that camera/lens combo. Thanks for sharing these with us. I will probably never be able to get to Kenya, so I truly enjoy traveling vicariously through the pictures of others.
To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.
