Hemprich’s Hornbill – Fantastic Ethiopian Wildlife… In Monochrome
by John Downey
I’m not much of a birdwatcher nor bird photographer, meaning I won’t go out of my way to track them down, but wildlife of Ethiopia is amazing when it appears, including this Hemprich’s Hornbill. I photographed this one near Aregash Lodge, in Yergalem, several hours south of Addis Ababa. Originally, the light and color didn’t do much for these but once converted to black and white, rotated the middle image ninety degrees and arranged the sequence, they work well together. I may frame all three as a limited-edition print.
The next few posts will feature more Ethiopian wildlife from a recent road trip.
