Liked the giraffe. Looks like it had a hair-dressing done

Which place / country is this? The first picture is taken from a top of a mountain and there appears to be nothing in there - just a road to eternity?

AFRICA! One place which is in my mind for long. I'm not sure whether I'd ever get a chance to go there.

@Lightening-Fast. That is exactly why tomtom has chosen that handle I guess

@Tomtom - Serengeti, Mombasa and Masai Mara are my dream destinations. I'm hooked on to this one. This is one place where I might never be able to go. That makes it even more special. Roll out the photos pal.

Very nice! please upload more pictures.

For a moment I read the thread title as "Endless Pains" and was a bit worried before opening the thread..

@MX6 add Ngorongoro to that list too... I wish I could do an Africa trip one day!

Default Flamingoes...

Wow! Talk about wild life photography...

And, flamingoes - the greater flamingo, reputed to be one of the most timid and elusive birds!

Here is one shot of the flamingoes from India - picture thanks to Sukiwa, a fellow t-bhpian

Default Wonderful pictures

Hey tomtom, Keep sharing the pictures of the African plains.. i am hooked too..

I envy Africa a lot, I beleive it's pretty easy to photograph and film the wildlife in African plains compared to the thick forest of India.

Wish I could visit Africa sometime soon.
