Tanzania 2004

Post by Coral » Tue Dec 30, 2014 4:19 pm

This is from our first trip to Africa in 2004. I bought my first digital camera a Nikon D70 and the best lens I could afford which wasn't much. Of the images that I shot of this it's the only one that was in focus of the digital images. Did shoot some with a 35mm that were in focus. I know it would be a lot better image if I had positioned the cheetah's head differently but I still love the it!

Darn uncooperative cheetahs! They just don't move their head where you tell them to! :D

Very nice shot. It looks like a great place to visit.

Failure means you tried. Success means you need to set higher goals for yourself.

LOL, Tom. It's the most incredible place I've ever been and hope to make it back there one more time before I kick the bucket!
