This past January, I was able to visit Africa, as I accompanied a mission trip to Kisumu, Kenya. It was a wonderful trip on so many levels. For the last few days, we were able to travel to the Masai Mara. I hope to share some of my favorite images going forward.

One morning, as we were out in our van, we could see the sun was preparing to line up with a tree very far off on the horizon. I asked the driver to stop just long enough for a shot, which I took shooting out of the top of the van. The top “pops” up so photographers can stand and shoot. This keeps everyone inside, safe from the animals and not having to shoot through windows. I’ll share a few animals soon, but sometimes the landscape was as interesting as the animals we went to “capture”.
