A trip Report – Chobe River, Botswana (June 1-4, 2012) Part 4

As promised – now for the photos taken during the afternoon cruises. Usually we are back at the lodge around 10H00 – just in time for a very nice breakfast served by the lodge. After breakfast comes the “hard” work – downloading the photos onto the laptops and starting with the post-processing/development of the photos in the conference room. O yes, of cause, under the watchful eyes of Lou and Veronica. Always around to give advice, comment on certain aspects of your photography and provide a helping hand on your laptop if you are struggling like I am.

With our previous trip we worked in the conference room until it was time for us to take our afternoon trip. Usual there is some time for a quick (just to gather some energy) siesta before moving towards the boats around 14h30/15h00 for the afternoon cruise.
