Dr Foster Went To Gloucester In A Shower of Rain!

At last, the end of another week and it’s been a rather busy one but now it’s over I can start to concentrate on all the things I need organise so I’m ready for my trip to Kenya. It’s finally starting to feel real, and excitement is mounting as to the flora and fauna I’ll witness when I’m over there.

It’s all very well having high hopes as to what I want to photography, but this all depends on the creatures themselves and whether they’ll be present, so I’m just going to have to see what happens. Of all the animals there, I really do want to see a Cheetah in it’s natural habitat and it would be amazing to see it hunting – all I can do it hope.

As you may remember, if you started on this year’s journey with me, that I would be writing a blog a day for the whole of 2011. This will pose somewhat of a problem when on safari as I don’t suspect there will be much access to the internet from the centre of the Masai Mara. I’m hoping to have enough time this week to complete a number of posts, that can be published whilst I’m away. So don’t think you’re getting away that easily!

I’ve managed to take a few images each day this week, having had a brief respite from the rain long enough to take the images you’ve seen. The rain hasn’t let up at all today and having photographed the Gerbera and the Cactus, the only thing left was the flower on a succulent that so far I’ve over looked. Resting the lens on the back of a dining chair, acting as a make shift tripod, a couple of snaps were enough. I’m going to have to find something else to photograph if the weather continues like this (zebra, lions, elephants.. oh hang on, that’s in 10 days time!) – I’ll try and make it a bit more interesting that todays. Any requests?
