What a very very wet day. Some of us were up early for a drive to the hot air balloon launch site, and the minute we jumped in the Land Rover we had a wall of rain. We did drive to the site anyway, however after waiting for 45 minutes the pilot came over and told us the flight was called off due to the rain.
We headed back to camp and nearly got stuck every 5 minutes. A 30 minute drive quickly turned into 90. Ugh.
After lunch our luck turned around, and we had multiple leopard and lion sightings. Four lions in a tree here, two lions in the grass over there, a leopard in a tree there, etc etc. Excellent afternoon by any standard.
The rains are challenging from a driving standpoint, because there is mud everywhere. I am sure the local farmers are quite happy right now.
I am doing a Lightroom processing lecture tonight, and I will process raw files from some of the guests. One of the challenges from these safaris is processing through thousands and thousands of raw files. Which to select? Why? I like to help out as much as I can, as I have processed a few photos before. :-) I am shooting film and video on this safari, so I cannot show my own images from each day.
