Republic of Zambia: June 2016
A trip to the Republic of Zambia in 2016. Not a trip that lent itself particularly to photography and issues with one lens significantly reduced the quantity and quality of my photographic output. Nevertheless it was a fabulous experience and wonderful country.
The Republic of Zambia is a landlocked country in southern Africa and shares borders with Angola, Conga, Malai, Mozanbique, Namibia and Zimbabwe – some countries that have experincedsignificant conflict and internal strife.
Zambia gained independence from the United Kingdom on 24 October 1964. A democratic country, Zambia is rich in natural resources and wildlife, inclding many parks and safari areas and, of course, Victoria Falls – Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “Smoke That Thunders in the local language.
During our time there we visited Victoria Falls, Mfuwe Lodge and Petauke.
*A number of images have been ‘sharpened’ using Topaz Sharpen AI due to an issue that developed with the 120-400mm lens during this project – the issue that impacted 2014 D-Day 70 pictures returned and the lens eventually failed on this trip.*
