MAY 2012 WINNER
By Russell Millner, October 2011
“About 5 years ago, I bought my first DSLR and started to get into (amateur) photography fairly seriously. I now travel widely, from Pole to Pole and wherever I can get to in between! Usually I’ll have a ‘photo-agenda’ of some sort, generally wildlife or landscape. Over the years we’ve travelled in Zimbabwe, Kenya, South Africa and Namibia, this was our first time in Zambia. South Luangwa was a very special place to visit, and both Kaingo and Mwamba gave us great experiences, I look forward to the day when we can go back.
This image was taken one evening in October, during a well needed Sundowner stop on a drive from Mwamba Bush Camp. (More from South Luangwa at www.russellmillnerphotography.com)”
Settings: Canon EOS 7D, 1/80sec at f/4.0. Focal 24mm. ISO 200.
MAY RUNNER UP
By Ian Woods, October 2010
Ian and Sylvia Woods visited us in 2009 and 2010. This picture was taken at sunrise, in the beautiful Ebony Grove, home to many baboons. The haze seen here is quite common in the grove, and makes it a really special place.

MAY RUNNER UP
By Bruce Harley, September 2010
“Photography came to me seriously in 2007 when I had to replace my very physical hobbies with something after spinal surgery. It has given me great joy as I connect with people more closely when I photograph them and for the new views it has taught me to take of the world around me.
I travelled to South Luangwa with my wife and we both rate this as one of the best experiences of my life. The people, the place and the drama of nature played out before our eyes were both special and inspiring. Capturing these as images was a great bonus. In fact, the images ended up in a storybook for our grand daughter which gave us so much pleasure in both the making and the giving.”
Settings: Canon 40D, 1/200sec at f/7.1. Focal 60mm. ISO 100.
