Mount Kenya - Looking South-East towards Batian & Nelion by 


This is the second in a series of three showing Mount Kenya from a helicopter. For a detailed description of the mountain, see Mount Kenya – Looking North towards Nelion.
This shot is taken from the north-west of Batian, the highest peak on the mountain at 5,199 metres (17,057 ft). the second highest peak, Nelian, can be seen on the image just to the right of Batian. The large glacier beyond Nelion is the Lewis Glacier while in the foreground are Northey Glacier (higher) and the Forel Glacier (lower left). The green lake to the right of the image is the Teleki Tarn.

Image taken on a Canon 40D with a Canon EFS 10-22 mm lens at 10mm; ISO 400 f4 1/800

Living for partly in Italy, partly in Phuket and partly in other locations around the world – Hong Kong & Kenya when I can – I spend a lot of time photographing anything and everything. I particularly enjoy the challenge of capturing shots of wildlife large and small – from elephants to insects. A wider selection of my work can be seen on my website at www.dgcphoto.com.
