The Ultimate Photography Opportunity - a light discussion
« on: September 05, 2009, 01:08:37 PM »
This is more a piece of fun, but i'm curious, given the opportunity what would you most like to photograph?

For me it is the Komodo Dragon.

Never tire of seeing these things in print or on tv. But photographing it?

It can out run me, will happily kill me and eat me with out a second thought and do so in the slowest most painful manner imaginable (so i've read). Oh yes it has a tail that can knock me off my feet with a single swipe and talons/ claws that will disembowel me in a stroke. Not recommending one of these for a pet you understand - but to photograph?

Maybe that's the challenge - getting the picture and getting out with my life to show for it. Now where's Austin Stevens when you need a madcap photographer?

I would like to have another go at taking geysers and hot pools photos in Yellowstone. I went there in August this year and after looking at the photos Iam sure I could do better.

I'd like to take pictures of animals in the wild - elephants, tigers, lions etc.

The zoo's and safari parks are good - but it must be better in the wild?
