Welcome to Tall Day

… photographs celebrating life

This is a non-commercial site driven by photographs I have taken. Whilst I am always ecstatic when I get a technically good photo, my interest is in catching a moment or telling a story.  My wildlife photographs are always a work in progress! It is the type of photography I enjoy most and sharing the experience is particularly rewarding.

Sometimes though an individual photograph of a scene or group of photos of a place will have ‘caught a moment’ or or have captured a theme and the blog gives me a chance to explain what I was struck by.

In November 2017 I spent a couple of weeks in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. Photographs from this trip to Africa will form the source for my next group of blogs.
