Background: I was a widow and she was a widow so we decided to reduce the number of widows in Las Vegas by two! She saw my pictures from my trip 6 years ago and said, "I want to go" So we went. She has a Nikon Z7ii with a Tamron 18-400 and I used a Z8 with a 180-600mm for long range and a Z50 when the shot was close. Usually the shutters were 1/500, auto ISO and "f" depending on the time of day. Two hours in the morning and 2+ hours in the evening, some evenings got so dark it was hard to focus. Lots of fun. So we're limited to 10 shots but we did see the big 5 and enjoyed the trip. If you want to go, I'll recommend "Enchanting Travels" to set it up for you, they did a great job all the way through.

Very nice, Bob. The tree shot shows that your sensor could use some cleaning.

The lens, had to set it on the seat while using the Z8 and it's all dirt roads. I cleaned up most of the photos but missed that one.

Beautiful. That first one belongs on the cover of a magazine. Makes me want to go paint one!
