Storm Gateway - #Mpumalanga   #SouthAfrica  

It was overcast and all gloomy skies, but I decided to take a drive in any event - It started raining and my hopes of a decent landscape image subsided. I found this gate along the road and decided to wait for a while and see what the weather does... The rain stopped and there was a break in the clouds...

Nice and big on 500px... #500px   #wildlife   #leopardess   #portrait   #Pilanesberg  
We found this beautiful young leopardess right next to Kgabo Drive in the Pilanesberg National Park in the North West Province of South Africa. She was sitting in the shadows, but the golden late afternoon light enhanced her feline beauty in a mystical way... She gave us quite a show before she leisurely made her way across the road and once again disappeared in the African bush.

Another image of this beautiful female leopard that I eventually found in the Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa... It took me the best part of 6 years for my first leopard sighting in Pilanesberg, but it was the worth the wait... href="http://www.linruphotography.com/">WEBSITE I href="http://www.linruphotography.com/sales">PRINTS I href="http://www.linruphotography.com/rights-managed-stock-images">STOCK IMAGES I href="http://linruphotograp...

I almost did not go out for the shoot due to the massive bank of clouds and the hidden sun... but just after sunset a magical display of colors made me gasp in awe! href="http://www.linruphotography.com/">WEBSITE I href="http://www.linruphotography.com/sales">PRINTS I href="http://www.linruphotography.com/rights-managed-stock-images">STOCK IMAGES I href="http://linruphotography.blogspot.com">BLOG I FACEBOOK I TWITTER I GOOGLE+ I href="https://i...

Story
Tagline
I am a conservationist and photographer and privileged to live in the natural splendor of the African continent.
Introduction
I was raised in a house where there always was and still is a keen interest and passion for nature, the outdoors and the African bush. 

Similarly, I always had an interest in photography. I always made use of every opportunity to get some shots in with my father's old film SLR, but film was expensive and opportunities few. I got my first Kodak point and shoot camera when I was 11, but the same problem remained.

During 2004 we visited the Pilanesberg Game Reserve in the North West Province of South Africa. We came across an impala ewe that was lazily grazing away on route directly towards a cheetah that was patiently lying in the grass and waiting - It was high noon and lunch was on its way! Needless to say, the cheetah had no choice and had to do what was neccessary... It did so quickly with almost no "classic chase" at all - If she did not make lunch of the impala, the latter would have boasted to her friends that evening about how she walked right over a cheetah and still lives to tell the story! It was my first cheetah kill that I witnessed, but... I did not have a camera with me!

I got my first digital camera during 2005, a Sony Cybershot, but soon realized that digital SLR is the only way to go. During 2007 I got my first DSLR, a Canon 400D, and a whole new world opened for me! Not only can I take as many photos as I want to, but I also have creative freedom when it comes to processing those photos.

I only became more serious about my photography during the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010.

Photography is unfortunately only a hobby and during office hours (and sometimes non-office hours) I am practising law as an advocate and member of the Pretoria Bar. I do however try to seize every opportunity to get out there and to get the shot.

For those who are curious where "LinRu" originated... It's got nothing to do with China and is only a combination of my wife's name "Lindie" and my name "Rudi" - I had to make some reference to her, as she is the one that needs all the patience with me and my hobby and on many occasions she is also my dedicated driver!
Bragging rights
Nothing to brag about... Just enjoying myself!
