A week at the World Travel Market took in many photos and a few meetings and conversations, not least with some of the African countries, including some reminiscing about last October’s fabulous trip to Zimbabwe, and here are just a few examples of the amazing landscape, including the stunning Victoria Falls.

Nine days in Zimbabwe provided ample opportunity to photograph some of the  landscape this country has to offer. My thanks to local photographer Tom Varley for guiding me to the best places to photograph the Victoria Falls – very impressive sight, and would love to go back after the rains to see it in full flow. Standing there watching the sun some up over the Falls really is one of those ‘glad to be alive’ moments.

Of the portrait shots one was taken on an early morning walking safari in Hwange Game Park, another at sunset in the same park, the the next was taken in Matopo Hills. The next two are back to Victoria Falls, the first from the Flight of Angels over the Falls, and the last just looking down towards the bridge over to Zambia.

The following shot is during a sunrise trip of the Falls using the ripples and colourful light to create an abstract landscape, then as the sun rises further it creates an orange sky.

The last few shots show sunrise over the Zambezi River, dry bush in the Matopo Hills, and finally the Three Sisters, one of many granite outcrops in the Matopo Hills. It would be fantastic to return and photograph the Eastern Highlands as well as seeing what these shots look like after the rainy season.
