Aerial Botswana

whenever you read this, we will either be on a plane or in a rental car or dodging potholes or already in THE BUSH. yes! we are going to the Kruger Park for our (hopefully) annual trip. you can read my post & see all the photos from last year here. i will only be gone a week, but i have lots of posts scheduled for while i’m away – so please do keep checking in.

i have been waiting for a moment to share these exquisite aerial photos of the wildlife & landscapes in Botswana by Brooklyn based photographer Zack Seckler. i have looked at them time and time again, and actually have them rotating on my desktop as wallpaper right now. i love them SO much. not just because i absolutely love Africa – and feel so lucky to live here – but because they are obviously damn beautiful. i have never been to Botswana, even though it neighbours us. it is a trip i hope to make soon.

Within the first few minutes of being up there, I was just completely blown away. Being in that airspace, you’re really seeing the world from a perspective that only birds see. Obviously no human on the ground can see that, and the big jumbo jets up above don’t fly that low. So it’s kind of this hidden airspace to the human eye, and it just immediately struck me as a really powerful visual.

excerpt from this interview at Wired. all photos c/o Zack Seckler.
i suggest you go see all of them on his website, as they look better BIG.
