First Images from Namibia

What a ride!! Adele and I have just arrived home from Namibia for a very quick stop before heading on to the St Lucia Wetlands and then to the Kwamadwala Game Reserve.

Our trip to Namibia was out of this world! Absolutely everything was perfect and we had the most amazing time. While we are getting ready to leave on a well deserved break at first light, I am busy downloading my own images from the trip. The scenery, landscapes and general photo opportunities was almost too much to contend with but I cannot wait to work through my images.

In between all the drinks, laughter and driving Pieter, our photographer, and Glen also took images all the time and from what we could see on the camera screens there were some awesome images!

Pieter will be editing the official wedding photographs and I will upload some of these when I receive it from him but in the meantime I have added a few of Glen's images from our Namibian adventure.


Adele and I at the old car at the Helmeringshauzen Hotel. The town is made up of the hotel and a petrol station but it blew us away with it's quaint charm.


Glen caught me 'hard at work' on the hill behind our hotel. Great landscapes and great light!


Skip forward a few days - Adele, Pieter and I play around with some images at Wolwedans where we stayed for the duration of our wedding.


Glen joining in on the action.


This was the setting for breakfast on 1 November, the morning of our wedding.


Jump forward to that afternoon. Glen shot this while Adele and I were on our way to the ceremony venue on the dune.


Adele and I after the wedding ceremony. The setting was out of this world!!

As soon as we return from Kwamadwala I will go through Glen's images and upload more images from the wedding. At first glance there are some great ones!! I will also be working on processing and uploading all the landscape, abstract and wildlife images I was able to capture during our trip. Some truly amazing scenes!!

Thanks for all the well-wishes and messages. It is greatly appreciated!! Will get back to you all as soon as the world stops turning this fast!

As always I look forward to hearing from you!

Until next time.
