Photo of the Day – Yawning Bush Hyrax

by Dave Burns | Posted in Photo of the Day | Tags: , , , ,

Because I can’t resist a cheesy TGIF photo, here’s a yawning bush hyrax. We were looking for leopards in trees as we drove around the Tarangire River on a recent photo safari. As we looked up into the canopy, there was this little guy staring at us from 6 feet away. He was (obviously) unimpressed by us.

A Panorama of the Tarangire River in Tanzania

Tarangire River Overlook - Tanzania, 2012

I just posted a new infrared panorama that I created on my last safari to Tanzania. You can see it directly by clicking here or from the link in my Panoramas gallery.

The image is one of my favorite views in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. The Tarangire River winds below you with trees extending beyond that to the horizon including many of the baobabs for which Tarangire is famous. The dramatic clouds that day gave our group the big Africa sky we had hoped for.

I stitched the panorama in Photoshop from 6 separate images made with a DSLR I had modified to make infrared images. I then shared the image using a plugin I wrote for Adobe Lightroom that creates a mashup with Google Maps and image tiles that I provide.
