Unfortunately somewhere on the farm someone was making loud metallic bangs at 4.30am - so that was that, no more sleep. At least that meant I had time to do some yoga stretches (the body is struggling a bit) and have a cup of tea before leaving!
We have phone apps to track where we walk so we can retrace our steps in the pitch dark… but even with that assistance it was a bit of a mission in a valley full of giant rocks and low hillocks. There is iron in the rocks which makes the compasses go a bit haywire. We finally found the cameras again, shot the pre dawn and then rushed back to shoot the cheetah feeding again.
So now having seen the results, I made a mistake and shot the first image too early so the overall result is too light. I'll have another go at it this afternoon/evening.
Off to Luderitz on the coast tomorrow, & will be shooting at Kolmanskop. You are probably familiar with the images of the old mining town being slowly engulfed by sand.
PS. tried Oryx again and it was really good this time. It can be a very tough meat.
