TRAVELS…..Antananarivo at sunset – Madagascar – travel photographer

By julietlemon February 15 2012 - 01.02 AM

Thought you’d like to see some more photographs from my recent travels to Madagascar – enjoy x

Driving through the capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo, on the way back from teaching a Lemur Photography Workshop, we drove past an area of cleared and flattened earth that was soon due to be turned into a bus and taxi-brousse depot.  But in the meanwhile, many people were taking full advantage of the open space and with all the hustle and bustle going on I insisted that we pull over so I could take some photographs.

The setting sun cast a soft light, which filtered through the dusty air giving a lovely warm glow to the vista.  Kids on their way back from school walking in small clusters, people pulling their carts and making their way home after a long day working in the capital created lovely silhouettes against the dusty backdrop.  A group of  young lads congregated to play football in the coolness of the late afternoon, making the most of the last few hours of sunlight, because at 6.00 pm darkness would descend.

A big HELLO and thanks for having a peek at the blog! So a little bit about me.........well I absolutely love the wonderful world of photography. I'm lucky enough to work with great people and at each shoot make sure that we have fun whilst getting great photos. I'm based in the UK where I photograph a lot of weddings and lifestyle shoots but also get to travel to far flung destination for a spot of travel, wildlife and car photography. I'm a Licentiate of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers as well as a Licentiate of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers and have won awards for my photography. My work has been published in national newspapers, wedding magazines, travel guide books, blogs and wildlife publications. My favourite colour is orange!
