Giant Baobab Under The African Sky
by Mark Dumbleton
The Milky Way burns bright across the African sky as a giant Baobab stands tall, growing from the rocky terrain of the Mashatu Game Reserve. Light pollution from the south adds a warm tinge to the sky.
Equipment: Nikon D800, 14-24
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. I endeavour to evoke an emotion through my photography, which evolved from a life-long passion for nature. The pursuit of capturing the unique beauty of a location motivates me to invest as much time as I do out in the wilderness, where I am focussed on nothing else than to potentially create a photograph with enough emotion and visual drama to tell a story; in an attempt to convey 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 boundaries to obtain that unique perspective on our natural world. I photograph nature in its purest form because I love it, and I love to share my work with people who appreciate it.
