Marakele Visit: July 2021

Spread the love

R.P., S.M., and myself spent the long weekend at Marakele National Park. We camped with the wildlife around us and did our best to enjoy a long weekend. Here are my favorite photos I took on the weekend.

Afterthoughts

In the unsafe times we are in: stay safe, keep your safety distances, where possible you can go out somewhere to remind yourself that the world is an awesome place!

There was a simple step to the photo edits above:

  • All adjusted, color and saturation mostly, through Photolemur 3. (It’s new, different, software now, Luminar. I use the old software)

We could have adjusted the Photolemur 3 processing adjustments, it all used the default No Style with no adjustments, we made the images smaller above since you wouldn’t want to wait for ages on such large images. You can go way further with the adjustments in your photos that you’d like to have, we just kept it simple this time.
