A strong Himba woman stands proud in front of a tree in a remote village in Namibia.

For this image I shot from a low angle to allow me to include the sun from behind the tree. This angle also helped to accentuate the strength of the woman.

I remotely fired two Nikon SB5000 speedlites from the side - they were teamed with a portable softbox and provided the smooth side light.

Fishing bear, Alaska.
With the salmon leaping up waterfalls this bear stood at the top and was quick enough to catch numerous salmon!
I was using the new super fast Nikon D5 to capture the action - what a beast this camera is!!

Another spectacular scene on the way to the hardware store...
It is really hard to get things done here as everywhere you turn there is a photo opportunity - a quick drive to collect supplies is hampered by numerous photo stops... :-)

I woke at 5 am this morning and could see the milky way glowing through my bedroom window so decided to get up and go for a quick walk :-) It was a beautiful frosty morning with just a hint of moonlight on the mountains.

This is a stitch panorama from 7 vertical images taken on the new Nikon D5 with the 14-24 lens. ISO 4000.
