A few Kenya wildlife photos
These are from our trip the last two weeks in January 2008.

Hats off to you and Carolyn, these are superb pictures. My jaw dropped on the fish eagle BIF shots and then dropped again on the LBR in flight. Excellent!
Another standout to me is the topi, just because the light is so great in that picture.
I am looking forward to more!
In the meantime, I would say that my reaction to the fish eagles is that I would like to see them processed a little lighter -- they have an overall "dark" look about them and I think lightening them would improve what are already some really spectacular pictures.
Congrats again Bill, and thank you for sharing these.

Excellent photos. Can't wait to see more. They make me want to jump on a plane to Africa tomorrow!

Great job,
makes me want to get back to AFRICA A.S.A.P.
but it's cheaper/easier looking at your captures-

Thanks for posting-Thomas

Many thanks Bill. More beautiful examples of both the technical and artistic aspects of photography that we should strive for.

WOW Bill, more amazing photos. Not surprising coming from you and Carolyn, but fabulous nonetheless.

I'm happy to see that the problems with your trip didn't affect your photography. Can't wait for the additional Fish Eagle photos. In the photo titled Lake Baringo, what's the Fish Eagle carrying?

I'm looking forward to your Tanzania pics as well. Not too far off until you leave. Have a fantastic time and see lots of young wildies!

These photos are breathtaking. Thanks.

Wonderful photos, Bill. The fish eagle photos are lovely.

I'm glad to see someone had better luck with the leopards than I had.

Only saw one where we were in the Mara, and in the very early morning so couldn't get a decent photo.

What an abosolute <font color="red">treat</font> to see your pictures, Bill! I'm really looking forward to the rest. Do you have a personal favorite?
