"Mt. Meru with Flamingos in Tanzania"


Fort Pierce, US
          

Hi all.

More a landscape photo than a wildlife photo but there are flamingos in it!

This is a shot of Mt. Meru in Tanzania, Africa. It had been shrouded in mist most of the day but the clouds opened up for a little while. Since I was busy shooting Flamingos at the time, I switched cameras and took this shot of the mountain.

Camera: NIKON D700/70-200 f/2.8
Focal length: 70 mm (equiv. 70 mm)
Aperture: F14
Exposure time: 1/500"
ISO speed rating: 200/24°
Program: Manual
Metering Mode: Pattern
White Balance: Auto

As always, any comments, criticism or advice very welcome.


JIM

Hi Bill.

You're welcome. There was a lot of interesting scenery but my focus was on the animals.

I looked at this a couple of times Jim. I think it is a great wildlife landscape, but a little "abrupt" on the left-hand side. I love the grass tones in the hills.

Hi Jim.

Thanks for the constructive criticism. I appreciate it. I only had my 200-400 and my 70-200 with me since I was shooting the birds. I should have gone back to the jeep and gotten something wider. Now that you point it out I have to agree with you. On the other hand I didn't want the birds to be any smaller in the frame but it probably wouldn't have taken much (maybe 50mm instead of 70mm). Now I will have to go back there

JIM
