Fantastic Foto Friday: Yellowstone National Park, USA

yel-grand-prismatic-springYellowstone is my favorite National Park in the USA and when I browse through photos like this, I really want to go back! Both, the natural landscape shaped by geo-thermal activity and the wildlife are amazing to behold! And, despite the many visitors, you can have peaceful moments like this, after a hike up the hill, looking down on the Grand Priscmatic Spring!

Fantastic Foto Friday – Angry Elephant in Hwange National Park Zimbabwe, Africa

angryelephant-rjdezember-wm

 

A picture says more than 1,000 words – and it is the most evident with wildlife photos: Nothing can capture the feeling of an angry elephant or a lion about to charge her prey like a photo.
Robin J. Dezember is the first guest photographer on Fantastic Foto Friday and his photography captures nature and wildlife in an amazing fashion, and his photo books are captivating.
This photo was taken in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe as part of a tour of Southern Africa – and if you have seen elephants in the wild, you’ll know how real this photo is!

If you want to see (and download) more of Robin’s photos, you can check them out on Robin’s Photography site – it’s worth the visit, you can have a virtual safari!

Chobe ElephantCrossing

Wildlife in Africa is amazing in many of the national parks. What makes Chobe National Park in Botswana so special is its location along the river. Being able to explore the park not only by jeep, but also by boat, provided us with unique sights, like this huge elephant swimming through the river, a feat that is hard to believe and I’d never seen before!
