CHRISTMAS ON THE COTE D'AZUR
Arrived in southern France this morning to spend the holidays on the Mediterranean. It's always beautiful here no matter the season. That doesn't mean it isn't cold! At least the colors are warm.
Down to the last few days of Christmas shopping. If you're still having trouble finding that special gift, there are a couple of slots left for the Tanzania Photo Safari featuring some of Africa's great national parks and the wildebeest migration. Sign up by December 25th and you'll receive an additional safari gift worth $500.

Merry Christmas Rick!!! Awesome picture!
Thank you for the birthday wishes. Very much appreciated!
PHOTO: The celebration was very subdued compared to the Napoleonic wars where the champagne was opened with the backside of a saber rather than by hand. Called 'sabrage', the saber follows the form of the bottle striking the lip, breaking the neck by separating the collar and cork from the bottle in readiness for passing among the troops. One needn't worry about the glass shards as the pressure from the bottled champagne blasts them outwards.
This photo was taken for the Four Seasons on the island of Lanai in Hawaii where they christen every Happy Hour with a sabrage demonstration. It took a few Happy Hours, a little bit of luck and a staggering amount of champagne - both in front and behind the camera - to accomplish the shot.
Let the season of celebrations continue! ... See MoreSee Less

Tomorrow is the last day in Africa for the season. Heading for the colder climate of Europe for a few months. It's sad to leave, and I'm already looking forward to the return next August.
There are still a few spots left on the Best of Tanzania photo safari next August 12-24 if anyone cares to join a few photographers for an exceptional 12 days of highlights including nonstop wildlife, stunning landscapes, unique tribal encounters, and unlimited photo opportunities.
If you book on or before December 25th, you can choose a bonus gift worth $500. Unwrap it here: spotlightphotosafaris.com/africa-safari ... See MoreSee Less

BACK TO GIBB'S
Two weeks in my favorite place in Africa: Gibb's Farm. You just can't beat it for quality, service, and relaxation. Gibb's is a working farm and coffee plantation where 90% of what you see on the table is provided by the farm. A culinary feast as well as a feast for the eyes - all due to a top-notch pair of managers with vision and a fantastic crew to make it happen. So good to be back! ... See MoreSee Less

That would be awesome!!

MORE THAN WILDEBEEST
Part of the Great Migration Photo Safari is spent with three local tribes in north-central Tanzania. Depicted here are the Hadzabe, the last of the hunters-and-gatherers. Being nomads, they live in and from nature, taking temporary refuge in a cave, quickly assembled grass huts or, during the dry season, sleeping in the open beneath the trees. Their diet consists of wild game, birds, honey, baobab fruit and tubers. There are less than 1100 Hadzabe remaining.
To see the Hadzabe, Datoga and Maasai tribes, join the Great Migration Photo Safari, 12-24 August 2019. Book by November 15th and save $1450!

The visits to the tribes were highlights of my safari with you -- those and the cheetahs, of course!
Beautiful photos of a fascinating culture. Thanks for sharing with us Rick

This is one of the many highlights of the trip. It’s also fantastic to take pictures of the young children.
