Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated

The theme for the Photo Challenge this week is “Saturated”.

Here are a few of my favourite “Saturated” images that I’ve captured over the years. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Your comments and feedback are always appreciated.

Saturated Sunset: Fantastic sunset on the eve of a birthday party for a friend at the Dolphin Crest Guest House in La Lucia. I particularly love the two silhouettes that appear to be taking in the breath-taking view from the roof. Truth be told, the silhouettes were actually looking at the ocean behind me.

Soaring Eagle: I must have taken about 200 photos of this majestic bird of prey while at the Falcon Ridge Birds of Prey show while on holiday in Central Drakensberg earlier this year. The birds are amazing creatures and truly formidable predators who also carry themselves with surprising grace that belies their ferocity.

Eagle in Flight

Fantasy View: A composite image you say? Not at all! This is the view of two “Puddles” and the surrounding mountains from a Look-out Point at Champagne Castle Hotel. This view marks the start of many exciting and challenging hiking trails that lead off the Hotel grounds and into the wilderness.

Home in the Range

Seeds of Life:  The potential of life curled up and waiting to spring forth in the Urban Jungle of Umhlanga.

Calabash Electricity: What a novel idea! I was tickled pink by this understated piece at a Zulu Cultural Village in upper Kwa-Zulu Natal. Taken many years ago on a family vacation, when I first got my Sony Alpha 200.

Wired Temple: At the end of last year I was asked to photograph a concert for the Band; Wired Temple, entitled “A Wired Christmas”. Mentioned in my earlier post “Band Shoot: Wired Temple Promo” These are a few images of the stage during the light check before the main event and of the artists during the concert.
