Flaming Namibian Rainfall
by Mark Dumbleton
The last light of day illuminates heavy falling rain in hues of oranges, giving much needed moisture to the barren landscape of the Excelsior Farm in the Namib Rand conservancy, Namibia. The already spectacular landscape of Namibia takes on an even more spectacular mood underneath epic, stormy light.
Equipment: Nikon D700, Nikon 16-35 f4 VR, Lee Filters
I am a wildlife and landscape photographer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Born with a passion for the outdoors, I travel through Africa photographing the events and nuances of the natural world. Evoking an emotion through photographic art stems from a life-long passion for the wilderness. Capturing the unique beauty of a location and it's wildlife motivates me to invest as much time as I do out in the wilderness, focussing on nothing more than creating a photograph with enough emotion and visual drama to tell a story; to justify to the viewer the immense beauty of that experience. The photographs on this website portray my passion for this, in a way that is both creative and natural, sometimes pushing the ethical boundaries to obtain that unique perspective on our natural world.
