About a week ago, I went on a long road trip on my own to look for something to photograph. I haven’t done this for quite sometime and I was excited to find out where the road will lead me. After about five hours driving around and a few stops along the way, I came across this “small zoo” in one of the emirates here in the UAE. Having a few hours of sunlight left and the fact that I was at least two hours away from home, I entered to explore the mini-zoo.
Right beyond the entrance, was the Nile crocodile enclosure and so that was where I started taking photos. The fence around the moat was up to my chest and the 4 crocodiles were close by. I did not bother to change my favorite 300mm lens with 1.4tc on my Nikon D3 and just snapped away. Using a telephoto lens with such a close subject yielded close-up and isolated images which I personally favor.
Here’s my “deconstructed” Nile crocodile images. Enjoy! =)
