Etosha – Day 1 – Giraffe at Ondongab Waterhole #2

So many animal picture to dig through … but here comes a first selection of images from our 4 day visit to the Etosha National Park, Namibia in September 2023. Unbelievable, the sheer number of animals at the waterholes and along the pads during the dry season.

Massen von Tierbildern, die erstmal abgearbeitet werden müssen … aber hier schon mal eine erste Auswahl Bilder von vier Tagen im Etosha Nationalpark, Namibia im September 2023. Unglaublich, welche Mengen von Tieren an den Wasserlöchern und entlang der Schotterpisten während der Trockenzeit zu sehen und zu fotografieren waren.

Driving Namibia – Gamsberg 2022

Back on the Gamsberg, Namibia after a long CoViD hiatus. After the heavy rain season in spring 2022, the access pad (gravel road going up the mountain) was severely damaged and not passable for even a 4WD. During summer Nic of adjacent Farm Weener and his workers did a superb job in repairing the pad. So in August we went up …

The video shows uphill and downhill on the challenging access pad.

If you want to get a glimpse of the night sky on top of Gamsberg, have a look at my latest astro time-lapse video.

Special thanks to:
Nic for getting us safely up and down,

Night in Namibia 2022 – Time-lapse Video

A new night sky time-lapse video from Namibia April/May 2022 is ready and posted to Youtube. Full HD, due to the size limitation not available at Vimeo. Enjoy!

For the gear heads: I switched from Canon EOS to Sony Alpha for the night sky time-lapses. The combination A7 III + FE 14 mm F1.8 GM is really a game changer for me.
