To see a Sable antelope (hippotragus niger) was on my African bucket list. A hoped for but not expected sighting. In Chobe National Park in Botswana I was treated to the sight of 40 to 50 trecking to water. I was so excited that I flubbed a much wider pano. The red brown coloration of the females and calves blends perfectly with the sere landscape.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
