Hi all…it is getting very close to Christmas now and I am going up to Swakopmund for a while with Noa to get my vehicle serviced and to chill a bit. This is therefore my last blog post for 2010 which will probably resume somewhere around the 4th January 2011. I just want to thank all of you who have been following this blog so far and for all the support that you have shown me and my business: ‘Lochner Photography & Publishing’. The blog has not been up and running long so I am really pleased with the way the views are increasing so I hope it grows and grows in 2011. Let me know if there is ever anything in particular that you want me to show you (photo-wise) or if you have any other queries or questions I can help you with. I am really looking forward to what 2011 will bring me! I would also like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to our sponsors for all of their support. They are listed on the right column on the home page.
Today’s photo is a black and white one which I decided to share it today because I can’t share it tomorrow for ‘Black & White Friday’. This leopard looks alert and in the hunt. I like this photo because its eyes and face are really in focus. This is tricky to get at night so I am happy with it. The eyes are also really clear, big and bright. Again, I will say that I love leopards and that they are one of my favourite animals to photograph as I am sure most of you will agree. Enjoy it and let me know what you think…
Thanks again to everyone for their support and come visit me in the Kalahari sometime in 2011. Take care and have a great party over Christmas and New Year! See you next year from both of us in the Kalahari.
Fantastic photo Hannes. Have a great Xmas and hope the New Year is fruitful and prosperous. Keep the great photos coming. From a wish list perspective, any Cobra shots would be appreciated. I have a healthy respect and fasination for snakes, bordering on the weird..
Safe travels and stay well
Great photography Hannes ! I wish you and Noa a Blessed and peaceful Christmas and may all your dreams come true in 2011. Looking forward to your blog in the New Year.
