|Leopard and Stormy Skies - 5D3, 24-70 @ 45mm, f/9, ISO 100|
I remember the morning I made this image well. It was after a night of heavy rains, and in the morning there were a lot of clouds in the skies but they were layered with interesting color and pattern. In the late morning, on our way back to camp after 5 hours of game drive (we left for game drives at 5:30 AM), I saw these white fluffy clouds against the deep blue of a distant storm. I turned to Grant and mentioned to him that all that was missing was a fantastic subject to put in front of it, ideally a Leopard resting on a tree with a clear view to the sky behind. Not 10 minutes after I said that we spotted a Leopard sitting in a tree. It took a couple of minutes to find the ideal spot to capture both the leopard and a bit of that wonderful sky.

One of the many interested things I discovered about Israel yesterday was Halvah. I'm very familiar with the Indian Halwa and nothing having met a sweet dish I didn't like I was curious to see what this was like. The Israeli Halvah is made from nut butter (tahini, i.e. sesame seed is what I had) and sugar and comes infused with a variety of flavors. I had a chance to try coffee and "spice", which was a combination of cinnamon and a touch of heat; both were good.

|Giraffe Run - 1D4, 70-200 @ 200, f/32, 1/20s, ISO 100|
I used f/32 for this image mainly to force the shutter speed low enough to get the motion blur (it was the middle of the day when this image was made). A lot of these motion blur images are just a matter of trying over and over until you get you are happy with.
