The African nature is splendid, sundry and striking. From the dry desert to the wet rain forest it encompasses an abundance of diverse habitats and species. Maybe more than anything the African savannah represents this diversity and abundance. It is where we find the big four, the huge hordes of ungulates, the graceful predators and prehistoric animals like rhinos and crocodiles. When I teach my workshops in Malawi, the small country by the lake of the same name, we usually take a couple of days off to go to Liwonde National Park which lies at the southern tip of Lake Malawi and by the river mouth of Shire. Those days embody some welcoming unwinding and a peaceful encounter with Mother Nature’s abundance. We usually get to see animals like various antelopes, hippos, baboons and if we are lucky an elephant or two. During the workshop this spring we came across nothing less than a small horde of elephants. It was amazing to watch those huge animals as they munched off leaves from big trees and grass on the ground. I have finally had time to finished processing the pictures I took during the workshop, and although I don’t regard myself as a nature photograph (despite spending much time out in the wilderness), I know many of my blog’s followers are very much into nature photography, so I decided to showcase a few of the pictures from Liwonde National Park.
