Shooting Kenya :: Lake Elementaita [mobile edition]

Hey guys. In my attempt to post more, or at least look like i’m posting more, I’d like to share some images I caught on a recent trip to Lake Elementaita on an initiative to show you a beautiful Kenya. Hence Shooting Kenya (#shootingKenya). The point of this is to get out of Nairobi once in a while with friends and enjoy the countryside and take in the sights and while at it maybe prove to you who may not believe it yet, that Kenya is beautiful. This is our edition of oneTouchLIVE, the group of photographers that go around shooting the country and letting you know about it as it happens. Follow the photographers, their handles are shown in the post below.

I haven’t edited the photos that I shot on my camera yet but I thought that before I do that I could share what I was sharing with some of you guys on my Instagram. All these photographs were shot on my Galaxy Note and edited using Pixlr o matic, one of the coolest photography app i’ve used yet. Get it + Instagram and your mobile photography life shall be changed…no, really. Get them now! No, I won’t wait.

Sunrise at Kinare forest (or it could be Kinale, assuming the guy we asked didn’t shrub)

Breakfast at the Rift Valley Viewpoint. (we had several rounds of this)

Mt. Longonot in the distance ( as seen from the viewpoint)

Lunch in the process of getting ready. At Kikopey. (I think they are too expensive now though)

On the shores of Lake Elamentaita. It was so hot at this time, even the camera needed a hat.

So we just had to get to that other side before the sunset. The sun would be setting behind us so we had to go round to get it.

Then the rain poured and poured for about 1.5hrs. We just sat in the car and hoped that it would clear by sunset. This time it was around 3.30pm

But my oh my, were we blessed with an awesome sunset about 2hrs later. Thank you God.

The hill on the left is called “The sleeping Moran” because of it’s shape. Cool huh?

That’s Mwangi Kirubi aka @Mwarv on the shoot.

And videographer Kanyingi aka @Nyingez.

It was the first time  doing a shootout with Shani @sirnare.

And last but not least, trying out photography for a creative release, @nasarathepoet. [shot by Nyingez]

I too made it in one photo at least. [Shot by Nyingez]

 

My camera worked hard for the photos that day, very grateful to be able to do this.

And just like that, about 45 minutes later, the sun was gone, but we were all smiling.

Thank you for following the story with me. Till another time when we shall be shooting Kenya, God bless!
