I miss Africa. I have to go back. You see, I was promised we would see hippos. Thinking about hippos is what got me through the horrible shots you have to get. And as sick as they made me I just kept telling myself that because of the shots I would get to see a hippo in person. Clearly I have not watched enough National Geographic Channel or I would be wary, very wary - nope - gotta see a hippo.

This photo was taken on my *hippo hunt* (with camera, not rifle). Before dinner each evening I would take off on my own, staying close enough to the camp, in a search of hippos. The zabunjia (guards) knew where I was so I was safe. They get one bullet in their gun for just such hippo encounters.

Never saw a hippo. Not even tracks. But as a consolation prize, I found lovely little coves and quiet scenes as the sun set. This image was taken at Lake Langano, minus hippos.

This listing is for an image with a luster finish. If you would prefer a different size, please convo me and we can sort something out. The watermark will, of course, not appear on your purchase,

Each image is signed verso, and shipped unmatted and in an archival sleeve for protection. If you are interested in matting, please convo me and we can figure out what would best suit your needs.

Thank you for taking a peek!
