Review: Sonnets, by Charles Gerard Timm

Good morning from Park of Giants

Considered a “park of giants”, Tarangire is home to huge baobab trees and large herds of #elephants , as well as lions, #leopards , antelopes, gazelles, wildebeests, #zebras , buffalo, and about five hundred species of #birds , both resident and migrant, the highest concentration in #Tanzania . The centre of life is the Tarangire River itself, which during the dry season, along with the Silale Marsh, becomes the only source of water, thus attracting large numbers of animals. The hills of #Tarangire are wild and rugged, and the landscapes are certainly striking so we usually include this #park in our itineraries, especially between June and November.

Our view of the medieval world is a mixed one: it is austere and vehemently religious, dominated by dour, moralising ecclesiastics, and it is wild and lawless, with widespread barbarism and strange, incomprehensible beliefs. Manuscript marginalia sit perfectly at the intersection of the two.

My gift to you:

To photograph such amazing nature can be such a reward.

With nothing more then a bird, a flower, and natural light.  It's simple!

I think the real key to nature photography is the ability to sit back, and to learn these species habits.  What do they like, when and how?  Understanding how nature works, then enjoying the moments is a truly superb experience.

Sometimes very special things happen, as some of you who have followed my Nature Image galleries may have seen.  I have been so fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. 

I do think the most awesome part of the entire acquisition of these images is the opportunity to share the techniques with my guests, and to share the images with you!  Many people around the world will never have such a chance to see these incredible birds, and their beautiful habitat., so here is my gift... and thanks to the wonderful technology of the internet, photos like these will become more and more availible to everyone in all corners of the world.

Thanks to everyone on G+, almost 63 million views since last February!

I appreciate all the support!

Please respect our natural world, and give back the environment to nature.

Raymond.
