Hello and welcome to my blog where I share my photos and experiences from my travels to the African bush and other wild places.

Lake Turkana, appropriately nicknamed 'The Jade Sea', is the world's largest alkaline lake. The emerald green water has captivated explorers throughout the last few centuries. The lake stretches from the north of Kenya deep into Ethiopia. It is wild country up there and very difficult to get to via land. You might just encounter some hostile tribes that still roam free in that part of the world. From the air there is not much wildlife to see, but flying in the Great Rift Valley and up to the southern shores of the lake is truly fascinating - it's like seeing geology in action! On the southern shore of the lake is of course the iconic Nabuyatom Crater, and somewhere down there, maybe at the bottom of the lake, is a Lee Filter Holder and Circular Polarizer for anyone who dares to find it!
