The Dark Continent!!
After a week or so of going through many of my Africa files, I was able to find a pretty broad range of images from down in the Cape in South Africa to some more recent tips to Mozambique and Kruger National Park. The result is a book of my favorite shots taken over the years. Some are film scans and other digital but they tell the story of seeing this contient's amazing eastern coast.
This book visits the dangerous and the beautiful through the lens of internationally published photojournalist Tim Rock.
This visual books deals with the eastern Africa coastal areas starting far south in and around the southern Cape where great white sharks ply the cool waters. It takes the viewer up the coast visiting the temperate and sub-tropical waters of South Africa. The book takes a look at Zulu life, the big (and small) game of South Africa's famous Hluhluwe and Kruger National Parks and then moves into Mozambique. This country has a huge coastline that is largely undeveloped and prime marine habtitat for migrating right and humpback whales, whale sharks and two species of manta rays as well as a variety of Indian Ocean fish and invertebrate species.
The book contains 240 pages with 337 photos of the amazing scenery, wildlife and marine life in South Africa and Mozambique. Each is in full color and photos are captioned and animals and marine life have identification. They have been gleaned from a number of trips to this once rarely-visited part of the world. Enjoy the photography and the beauty found along the Dark Continent's east coast. It's a special part of the world.
