Venezuela: Angel Falls
|The previous week we had walked to Roraima, where the legendary story “The Lost World” was supposed to have been
conceived. We were then to travel by dugout canoe to Angel Falls, (the world highest waterfall) which necessitated flying in a small plane over the forest into a small clearing. On route the plane took a detour, skimming the walls of the valley, past the Falls. As it banked for a second run I took the shot outside the plane window. Fortunately, I was in the first of two planes; the passengers in the second were too busy filling up sick bags to take photographs.
My name is Tony Welham and have been taking photographs for almost 40 years. I still enjoy creating images without any particular theme apart from recording my experiences. The images I have chosen are a sample of those.
I tend to visit remote areas and enjoy meeting local people. In addition to travel my other interests include, mountaineering, flying (PPL (A)), scuba diving and bridge.
I occasionally use a my Canon D10 digital camera but, as most of my travel is off the beaten track, I still prefer film. The camera I use is a Canon EOS3, a Canon 28-105 lens and an Epson scanner and printer.
