An ND5 Voyage on True North II

Video still from Michael Fletcher's Youtube video featuring True North II See it on Youtube here:https://youtu.be/LGmj6VTxzq4?si=Bqx43h4uQJ0HZGMe Many readers may remember ND5 - Ninety Degrees Five, a collaboration between Les Walking, Tony Hewitt, Christian Fletcher, Michael Fletcher and me. We've been a little quiet for the last few years, but our website (www.nd5.com.au) is still active and we're still active - just we haven't been doing a lot together.

The Tree Near Tolkien Rock

The Tree Near Tolkien Rock

Tree in flooded Awatere River, Middlehurst, NZDJI Mavic Pro 2, f2.8 @ 1/120 second, ISO 100 As we continue to spend time on our passion, it surprises me how often you can find a new way of doing something - like photography. Sometimes it's just a change of attitude or perhaps being influenced by another artist or photographer. It can also be a change or development in technology and there's no doubt AI is really going to move things along (especially with Adobe's new Structure Reference...

What Is a Birrida?

What Is a Birrida?

Birrida, Shark BayPhase One XF 150MP, 55mm Schneider Kreuznack, f4 @ 1/1600 second, ISO 160 What is a birrida? I call them claypans or saltpans, but technically (I'm told), the things what look like claypans or saltpans up at Shark Bay are birridas. Birridas started life as small salt-water lakes between sand dunes when the water level was higher than it currently is. But as the sea level dropped, the source of water disappeared and the lakes dried out to be called birridas! It is quite...

Uganda Photo Tour - 2 to 13 July 2024 US$10,995

Join Peter Eastway on a photography tour of Uganda.

This photo tour is a fascinating, off the beaten track African experience with a great mixture of experiences because it is not only about rare wildlife (like birds, mountain gorillas and chimpanzees), but also tribal people and culture.

Uganda has about 60 different tribes registered with the state, including the first people to arrive in the country about 5000 years ago, the Batwa Tribe (pygmy families). Another group is the Bahima Tribe, known for long-horned Ankole cattle keeping. We will not only photograph the wildlife, tribes and explore villages, but also learn about their tribal traditions and lifestyles.

The level of physical activity required for this tour is best described as moderate to quite active. For instance, you’ll be pretty active on the days when we trek up to see the mountain gorillas, the chimpanzees and the swamps!

As we require permits from the National Parks for the gorilla and chimpanzee treks, it is important to book for this tour as early as possible!

The tour includes:

• Photograph Mountain Gorillas

• Meet Batwa people (pygmy families)

• Learn about the local traditions

• Photograph people milking Ankole cows

• Discover the daily life of local people

• Photograph the Chimpanzees

• Porters to carry your equipment on Chimpanzee and Gorilla treks.
