What kind of work do you do. It seems to me you make a lot of money to afford all the safari's and the time off. Or maybe you are a norwegian royal? King Aksel smile

Enough of that (it was just a bit of jealousy for all the travelling you do). The picture is a great one and pulls all my african strings. The savannah, the trees, distant blue mountains, the animals. Love it and the crop you have done here.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks smile I'm an inhouse training consultant for a big food chain in Sweden and Norway, ICA. Right now I'm in Bergen (a town on the west coast), working with some of our store managers. I'm a DINK so we can travel a bit - this shot is from our one month honeymoon in Kenya back in 2005. Regards King Aksel smile

Out of Africa!!! At first I saw only 2 elephants, Aksel, and then suddenly they started popping up everywhere.

Were you on Safari? What an expansive shot! You'll never forget it.
Aksel from Norway: This is from our one month honeymoon in Kenya, back in 2005. I had just bouht my first SLR the week before we left. I had only with me the standard lens 18-55 mm, looking back....Oh boy I wish I had more lenses with me smile Well all the pics are stil in my head so there is no reason to complain... And I agree with you, I will never forget this trip

I’ve seen some of the shots from this trip before, this one is breathtaking. I think my memory cards would get a kind of ADHD if they could “see” images like thissmile Hope to see more from this trip smile

Aksel from Norway: Thanks, I'll post pics from the trip the rest of this week smile I know you sometimes are out in the wilderness as well, looking forward to see some pics from your trips...or are you only hunting and fishing? smile
I really like the format you have chosen for the picture.
This is a fab shot Aksel smile
Aksel from Norway: Thanks Magnus. I'm quite pleased with it my self smile
