West Midlands Safari Park Day Out | Competition Entry for 'Safari Photographer Of The Year'.

Hey guys :) 

I hope everyone has had a nice weekend and the beginning of the week hasn't been too tough! 

I am loving the fact it is slowly getting cooler at night because I can now freaking sleep! I do still keep waking up at night though in fear that there is a mahoooosive spider crawling about. 

* Actual vom*

Okay, so I cannot even breathe about Arachnids but animals however is a different story. If the world contained no humans I would happily live side by side with a fury being. Fact. 

Yesterday, I made a return to the West Midlands Safari Park, one because I wanted to go and two because I am entering a competition. More about that in a bit. 

I had a free return ticket which I received from the park when I went on my birthday. They always give you free return tickets which I think is really good. The weather was really nice but considering it was a Sunday it was actually pretty packed. 

WMSP are hosting a competition for 'Safari Photographer of the Year' where you can win a bundle of prizes, grab the said title and have your work on display in January. 

You guys know that I love taking photo's and I am totally in love with photography so I jumped at the chance to enter. Animals and photography combined = a happy Leya. 

Today's post is a little insight to my weekend and I also need your help on choosing 5 pictures to submit to WMSP as my entries. I have gone through the photos and have picked a bunch of my best ones. 

What I would love is for anyone reading to leave me a comment stating which 5 you think are the best out of the bunch I am about to show you. I may number them so if I do, just let me know which numbers. You can also let me know on Twitter - I will leave my handles at the end of the post. 


So yeah, Mum, Dad and myself went to the park yesterday and the animals were either being fed by the keepers or had been fed, so they were mostly really energetic. Unfortunately the White Lions decided to go and chill at the back of the enclosure AGAIN by the time I got to them, so I was really upset that I couldn't capture them.

It took around 3 hours get get round the park, especially as I was constantly like "STOP THE CAR" to Papa Hutt so I could hang out of the window to take pictures. On two occasions I almost broke my body in two, to get the pic of the Giraffe looking at me face on, I was literally hanging half of my body, backwards out of the car window almost dropping my camera on my face (and it was hella heavy). To get the image of the Tiger again half my body was out of the car and I put my lens against the wire to get a clear pic. I totally pulled  a muscle in the back of my left thigh. 

Ha ha. 


At the end of the  day we took a walk through the Lemur Woods and checked out one of my faves, the Meerkats! I took some more pictures, fed the goats, ate a load of doughnuts and took more pics. 


I love a good day out!! 


Right then, to the important part of the post. The photes! 

Please let me know what you think, if you would adjust anything and which ones I should submit. 

I will love you forever and evs, amen!! :) 


Lets GO!!

I took around 300 photos just yesterday so there were a lot to go through and edit. I shortlisted these ones as I feel they represent an atmosphere, capture a moment and showcased some of my better work. 

Don't forget to let me know which 5 pictures you feel could help me win the competition.
