    Thanks! Its a special place Rwanda. So many hills and quite diffrent locations for such small country. Ive combined seeing distant relatives in Kigali and visited Akagera, lake Kivu and the vulcanoes in the north.

    And the elephant was quite cool at meet at close range, its not a guarante to se them in Akagera nationalpark due to dense vegetation etc.

    Thanks again!

    Daniel

    Edit: maybe i will post a few more eventually
     
  5. Such a beautiful country, well shot. Too bad so much bad happened there.


    P.S. What equipment are you using?

    Thanks!

    The elephant is cropped a little bit.
    But because of the dense vegetation and small dirtroads we kind of suprised each other. He flapped hes ears and did a small fake charge. But after a couple of minutes he continued eating. Hard to get a clean shot in all vegetation.

    Edit: yeah EM 1 and Oly 60mm for the animals. Flowers and landscape 12-40mm oly zoom
