Mozambique Island photos

October 14th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink


I recently visited Ilha de Mozambique with AfricaWildtruck and my attention was captured by little details. I find the way its history is somehow floating in the present absolutely unique and the constant presence of this past everywhere is deeply fascinating me.

I used a simple smarthphone instead of a big photocamera, well, I know image quality is not fantastic, but perhaps loss of pixel is fascinating me too.

Nell’ultimo numero di LatitudeMag South Africa, spero vi piacerà curiosare tra alcune delle mie foto per lasciarvi un po’ traportare dalle suggestioni di viaggio, magari traendo ispirazione per un percorso tra Maputo e Pemba (con qualche deviazione!)… e chissà che non si possa viaggiare insieme!

Running lion

March 31st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

We met his beautiful male lion in January, during one of our trip to South Luangwa national park, Zambia.

Despite it was the rainy season, we spotted a pride of more than 20 lions with about 10 cubs. He was running a bit, just moving for the night from a bush to another one, just in front of us. Amazing! I was fast enough to try a panning with my 24-105 mm lens.

(thanks Stefano Pesarelli for your precious advices!)
