From My Sketchbook

A sketch I did of a scene in Namibia in Southern Africa – a land of mystery and wide open spaces.We had the privilege of living there for a time. A wonderful experience. A beautiful and strange land.

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in The United Kingdom. I feel that more than anything else, nature, and the objective things around us, convey a speech and a message we always need to listen to and follow. This kind of listening is life-giving and there is a certain form spirituality about it. In this blog, through the the photographic image and accompanying words, I’ve tried to share this experience as simply as I can. There is an underlying beauty in nature we all need to see and experience, especially in this day and age as we struggle to save our planet. Most of my shots are taken with a Fujifilm XT100 camera and my Iphone. I’m no professional Photographer, but I do enjoy outdoor walks with my simple gear trying to capture what I see and experience.

    1. Thank you Sandra. Yes, It was a fascinating place to live. The wildlife is something to see. We lived quite close to the Etosha Game Reserve, a huge, huge area filled with an immense variety of Game. One of the most beautiful sights I ever saw was a herd of Giraffe crossing the salt pans in the shimmering heat. I’ll never forget the image. It was like a vision.


    1. Thanks again, LuAnne. It really was a blessing. As I look back on my life, those three years in Namibia were a real gift to me. I remember them with immense fondness and gratitude
