New Photos from Tanzania’s Lake Natron


My recent trip to Tanzania included a visit to Lake Natron, where I hoped to capture the colonies of lesser and greater flamingos who rely on the area as one of its few consistent breeding grounds in East Africa. As you’ll see from the slide show, our subjects did not disappoint! The salt water lake is home to organisms that manage to thrive in the high salinity and ultimately give the water the rich and varied hues, providing a beautiful backdrop for our shoot.

Pelicans and other birds also made an appearance, and zebras kicked up dust as they traveled through the same region. As mentioned in my previous post – this trip was short but satisfyingly productive and well worth the aggressive travel schedule. I feel this is my strongest work yet in this region, and I hope you enjoy these images!

    Beyond amazing as always…I never get enough of your photos and videos. I’ve watched all the “Travels to the Edge” programs I can find and DVR’d them and have also purchased your book “Earth is my Witness”. My breath is officially taken away! I sincerely hope there will be more Travels to the Edge programs. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and the world you capture with us. Linda Horton, Tampa FL
