Savannah Panorama

January 8, 2013

Please click and watch the photo!

This is a view over the vast savannah near Ngorongoro in Tanzania.

A beautiful and magnificent landscape, but at the same time it also illustrates how small people and animals are:

Look to the left and you will find two Maasai herders moving in a fast trot. I followed them for some time, they were apparently on their way without their cattle. On foot – as they are accustomed to.

Farther to the right and back  several herds of cattle can be seen in the distance against the horizon. And their Masai herders….

Something else, that is clearly illustrated here, is the problem I mentioned the other day in my previous post: How details are missing or faded, so it is necessary to click a couple of times on the image to view these….

    I’m so glad you highlighted the maasai herders, so I could find them when I made the photo bigger. This is africa at its best, a vast and beautiful landscape which you have captured so wonderfully with your camera.

      It is very typical for northern Tanzania here – and probably much more of Africa…

    Beautiful image, Truels. You really should seek out a more appropriate theme to show off your images. How’s the search going?

      Now I try to use pixel-size 600 for the width of the images…. To be honest I can not really see an improvement….. so maybe the next step is another theme.?…
