After a long plane ride yesterday, I am now back in Dubai, ready to sort through a lot of images and hopefully do something interesting with them in the form of a book. But more on that later!
Like I’ve mentioned in some of my older posts, sometimes when you go to a very photographed landmark, it can be quite difficult to come up with fresh angles to shoot. The same applies to the Baobab Avenue, probably Madagascar’s most photographed touristic attraction. There are a couple of very well known spots to photograph the trees against the setting sun and this year, since I was there for the second time, I went looking for new ways to approach this place.
I spotted this Zebu (the local cow) cart approaching from the distance and I thought it might make for an interesting subject against the towering Baobab trees behind. So I quickly switched to my 14-24mm lens did a couple of test shots to get the exposure right without the cart and then waited for the right moment. I’m quite happy with the end result, but as always I would love to hear what you think.
