Into the Bush

I’m done teaching for the school year, most of the Balama population has left hence transforming it into a ghost town. So when I was recently invited by Brad  from bradnjenministries.com to join him on a bush trip to northwestern Cabo Delgado it was an opportunity I could not pass up.

Below are photos from my trip up north.

  4. […] Photographer Rafael Hernandez recently submitted this perfectly timed photo to reddit’s I Took a Picture subreddit. In the comments he explains that it took him nine tries to get the effect he was looking for (the photo above was his fourth attempt). The photo was taken in northern Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, with a Canon 5DMII (28mm f/1.8 lens, Exposure: 1/1250, Aperture: f/2.2, ISO: 160). The 28mm lens means his camera was mere inches from the axe!

You can see the rest of the photos from the trip on his blog. […]
