Nossob timelapse


Nossob timelapse
Not with a single photo but 550 photo’s combined into a timelapse video. When you are here you can hear the wildlife long into the evening even after the camp fires went out and everyone’s asleep. The sounds of jackals calling, lions roaring and even the hoo-hoo of an owl or two. The allurement of Nossob and of the Kgalagadi is magical and makes one want to come back time and again. Here the supermoon rises above the campsite. Fires burning and stories about the day are being told.
Back at home, I can hear the waves breaking, now and then a dog barking and wonder, where have all the wildlife gone…
Taken @ 17mm, 5s, F4, ISO 640
