Photo Challenge: #Myshot-African Cats

Photo Challenge: #Myshot-African Cats

Photographing African Cats but it is an amazing and thrilling experience where you learn something new with each image you take. The photographic possibilities are endless, which make the challenge even greater.

As a photographer, I believe in not just coming home with beautiful photographs, but to learn as much as I can. What better way to tell a visual story and to learn about the behavior of the animal.

We had a tough time choosing the top five images since their were beautiful submissions. Thank you for all who contributed and please keep sharing in our new challenges to come.

Namibia will demand that you spread your tripod legs and stretch your histogram to its limit. What awaits you is a vast unpopulated wilderness rich in diversity and full of creative possibilities.

The Namib Rand provide the perfect backdrop for amateur and professional photographers alike. The incredible and abundant contrasts of color and geology the landscapes will give ample opportunity for the perfect shot. The Namib Rand Nature Reserve, located in southern Namibia, is a private nature reserve established to help protect and conserve the unique ecology and wildlife of the south-west Namib Desert.
