On a drive to Amboseli  with a few friends the other weekend, we happened to stop at the border with Tanzania. A subaru forester drove in from beyond the grasslands and it was looking amazing making a path where there was none. Being among the same group we were with there was no point of worry but for me, the dust and the light from the sun make a great picture on my mind. Quite an amazing image that i had to get focus on and made sure to get the moment on click

Shoosh

I happened to attend a wedding late last year during the holiday season in Embu County, Kenya. Having sat at the back of the church which was dimly lit, i noticed Shosho who happened to stroll by easy minding her business. She seemed deeply to caught up in her thoughts and as she approached the door, the light shone on her face

Shoosh! The people around us

With the 50mm 1.8 STM already on the camera, i came up with this shot. The background of the church window made the image stand out more. I called it “Shoosh” due to her look; old but somehow trendy! Ok

Shoosh! The people around us. Its very funny that we seldom stop to notice the people that pass by. Am sure each has a story to tell by just a second glance #MachoniMwangu. Please note that staring at others is also not a very wise thing to do, you might end up with a slap on your face

And there goes 365 days of the Year 2015. Hopefully whatever it is that you had planned to do was done well, if not a new dawn is coming. Thank you 2015, It was a good year! Welcome 2016

At #KasuniePhotography, we managed to see some milestones as well and are grateful thus far. The website is up and running thanks alot to Sobbayi who happens also to be a great friend. Mixing business and friendship to many is a challenge but we thank God thus far as He has worked it out. We look forward to many more great years. New gear as well from #Canon, easy to use and quality i  must say and through #B&H, #Savostores thanks guys. You were terrific and helpful

We managed to #Travel to different places within the country. Truly our nation, Kenya is a marvel. Filled with such beautiful landscapes, warm and friendly people, better access roads, fresh clean air in the #Bundus visited and moreso awesome birds with stories to tell. From #Magadi to #Elementaita, #Embu to Isiolo, #Mombasa and #Kilifi,  #Nakuru to #Namanga we were lucky to visit not forgetting our back yard #NairobiNationalPark which has always provided great views of the #Nairobi city especially from #HyenaDam area and birds all around

2015 was quite busy and busy good. And with travel and photography being a way of life for #Kasunie we enjoyed it thoroughly. We thank God. For each moment, every opportunity to go out, to work with and learn from other great photographers : Thomson, Osborne, Pau, Namunyak et al we are grateful and hope to see you more again in 2016 and beyond

The many people we met on our travel diaries, we a happy to have met and learnt so much. No man is an island i believe (maybe Norman but only he can tell) and getting to know you all was a thrill in itself. We learnt so much.  Our facebook friends and likes in both  #Kasuniephotography and #MachoniMwangu, we appreciate you at each post. For enjoying our work, criticizing and most of all sharing, we are encouraged to share more,  showcase more

And the great food, how could i forget that. The different delicacies out there, my God! Enyewe, #Kenyans can pakulia (serve) you very well. The assortments were out of this world. sumptuous i tell you. Especially after an early or late afternoon game drive, the great food and rest makes it complete. The food bit could not just go unmentioned.

Thank you all for being part of our 2015 and most of all, thank you Jesus for every opportunity.

Happy holidays from Kasunie.com. Thank you 2015, It was a good year! Welcome 2016

Once again we feature #FreeFotoFriday – Yellow-Rumped seedeater returns with a spectacular showing of the reason as to why it is called so. With the several poses taken for the bird on the same day, the different angles brought out special image effects

See the nice coloration of yellow on the back.  I like the image as the bird was looking into the valley below and the dark clouds that morning made it look different. Different good!

At times one goes bird watching expecting to see those different birds out there but the same bird in a different dimension show off a an awesome aspect – An outstanding Yellow rump

#KasuniePhotography

PS: After thorough scrutiny and clarification from fellow bird watchers, the bird on the image is actually the non breeding male of the Yellow bishop. Confirmed as on Birds of Kenya’s rift valley by Adam Scott Kennedy

#FreeFotoFriday – Yellow-Rumped Seedeater is our free unique image this day. Captured in Sleeping Warrior lodge, the bird i want to believe has made its abode around the Cordon Bleu accommodation area as it was around for our stay.

Maybe it  was the welcome and stay on well party. We were thoroughly entertained. She was huge and fat and basking in the porch each morning for the  morning sun was part of its ritual

The yellow rump was vividly seen unlike after a while as it seemed earlier like the streaky seedeater. For sure by the size of the bird, the area seems to be blessed with plenty. Am not even sure whether it could fly far leave alone fast if attacked

#FreeFotoFriday – Little Bee-Eater

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on TumblrEmail this to someonePrint this page

On our last escapade out of town last month comes our #FreeFotoFriday – Little Bee-Eater image of the day. Met with this bird after a morning game drive back to Nairobi Tented Camp the only accommodation located inside the Nairobi National park

The little bee eater (Merops pusillus cyanosticus) is differentiated from the blue breasted bee-eater by NOT having a white on side of the face. many people tend to think that its the size that makes it little but am not sure of what you would call a young one of the blue breasted bee- eater or any other bee-eater out there

The bird was so curious of the visitors that unlike the others, it did not fly away. Instead it seemed comfortable to have us around. The look it gave me is what makes this image our #FreeFotoFriday

With the El-nino rains beginning i have a feeling that majority of the bird watchers will hide away and try to keep warm. But #Kasunie is looking to go out and showcase more birds out there. we are still waiting to see the early arrivals of the pale-arctic migrants. Any one who has spotted any yet?

#FreeFotoFriday – Flight of the spoon Bills

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInShare on RedditShare on TumblrEmail this to someonePrint this page

#KasuniePhotography has taken the month of October seriously and is looking to #Waterbirds. Along the #kenyan rivers, estuaries, dams and even the larger water masses like the lakes, the waterbirds have taken the chance to inhabit and even nest herein. I happened to catch these Spoon Bills in flight in Lake Magadi

Flight-of-the-spoonbills_1580

These spoon bills in flight were photographed in Lake Magadi while the lake had subsided. Majority of the Flamingo’s had gone to breed and these birds seemed to have been enjoying the wider lake.

The folks around the area had actually made paths along the lake and to some extend even a market adjacent to the hot water springs when we arrived.

The spoon bills closely resemble flamingos but are are easily identifiable by their flat bills that resemble huge cooking spoons #Kasunie #FreeFotoFriday

A common bird of the savanna, the female Ostrich is our #FreeFotoFriday image of the week. The ambient light glowing from her head as she stopped to look made the moment glorious.

There is always a high possibility of seeing an Ostrich with a visit to the National parks in Kenya. The image was captured in Lake Nakuru National Park on the plains Beyond Makalia Falls #Kasunie #TembeaKenya

Our #FreeFotoFriday image this week is the Greater Blue Eared Starling. The shades of blue and purple on this bird especially on the mid day sun brings out a whole different dynamic aspect; natures designs.

A very beautiful bird with amazing shades of the color Blue and purple

The dark markings on the wings are consistent with the superb starling as well. Could it be symbolic or do they have a distinct purpose for being there? Maybe Dale A. Zimmerman or Donald A. Turner of birds of Kenya and northern Tanzania or Nature Kenya will inform us in time
