As we approached the rim of Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, I saw this beautiful grove of Acacia trees with the crater floor in the background. I brought two camera bodies with me (so I didn’t have to change lenses from telephoto to wide angle in the dusty savannah). This photo, taken with my, now ancient, Canon EOS D60, EF17-40mm f/4L lens on Lexar Digital Film. It’s a single image processed as an HDR with Photomatix Pro.
Oh how I love these trees . . . many trees near the rim of the crater, becoming fewer and fewer as we went farther down into the crater, until there were none at the bottom. This photo carries me back to Tanzania!
beautiful, i love the crater as the backdrop.
Thanks Andrea, glad you like the photo. That’s a lot of what makes this fun for me.
What is it about trees? You’ve really payed homage here.
Thank you… This is another one of those shots that really came alive after cropping.

Thanks… I know you like surprises.
