These images are from two trips to northern Tanzania.  In 2008 we traveled with a group of friends and "Amazing Tanzania", lead by Nigel Perks, a native New Zealander.  Nigel ia a photographer himself and has worked with BBC and other professional photographers on many occasions. Thus, although not primarily a photo safari, the guides were sensitive to the light and facilitated good photographic opportunities. Our second trip in 2010 was a photography safari with "Windows of Nature", lead by Dee Ann Pederson, an experienced, published, and nationally acclaimed wildlife photographer.  Her co-leader was Nancy Rotenberg, a creative fine art and travel photographer with whom I've enjoyed several workshops.   An additional thrill from the 2010 trip was the opportunity to photograph for a few extra days with just Dee Ann and her skilled and knowledgeable driver and guide.
