Moonset in the Okavango

Moonset. Okavango Delta. Botswana

Moonset. Okavango Delta. Botswana

We’ve been editing the pix we shot in the Okavango Delta with African Horseback Safaris and as we work through them we come across some images that trigger wonderful memories, like this one of the moonset early one morning. The bush was simply magical: the transition from night sounds to day sounds, the crisp coldness of the dawn and fresh clean air. What a brilliant time to be awake!

Camera Details: Canon 5DsR and 100-400mm  MkII lens on a Gitzo tripod with a Manfrotto ball head. Lexar cards brought the images home. ISO200 1/20 sec at f5 with -⅔ exposure compensation.
