Olifants River Cruise; Phalaborwa, South Africa

 

 Olifants River Cruise; Phalaborwa, South Africa

I was inspired by a recent post on GloboTreks, River Cruising: a Different Adventurous Journey. A river cruise is a fantastic way to see a city from a new perspective. And while I was in Phalaborwa, South Africa, I discovered that they are also an excellent and different way to spot game.

 Olifants River Cruise; Phalaborwa, South Africa

Yesterday’s sign was spotted along the Olifants River in Limpopo Province. There are real, wild animals along this river. Africa ain’t for sissies. Any safari, whether it be by land or see has an element of danger. For example, did you know, hippos are the most dangerous animal to humans (yes more dangerous than the big cats)? Yep. People assume they are docile, but get in their way, and they become vicious and deadly!

Photographing Lightning Over the Atlantic

 Photographing Lightning Over the Atlantic

Photographing lightning is one of those moments in an amateur photographer’s career that seem nearly impossible. There are so many factors to consider that one might think, “Why bother trying in the first place?”

First of all, you need to have the right background. Lightning comes over my house nearly everyday in the summer, but I’d never try to photograph it. There are too many trees, houses and streetlights that block the view of the sky, rendering any photograph I take useless.

Maho Beach, St. Marteen

 Maho Beach, St. Marteen

I hope Sunday’s post piqued your curiousity. The danger sign that you saw can be found on Maho Beach on the island of St. Marteen. Maho Beach is located at the very end of the runway for the island’s airport. And when I say the end of the runway, I mean the end of the runway. The only thing between the beach and the runway is a 2-lane road. This is one of the only runways in the world where beachgoers can get this close to landing and departing aircraft.
