Does anyone have any Ngorongoro Crater photos I could use?

Travel Forums Travel Photography Does anyone have any Ngorongoro Crater photos I could use?

I have a small blog called Worthy Of A Bigger Audience where I review music, movies, etc, and also travel destinations. A few months ago I reviewed the travellerspoint.com website:

http://woaba.blogspot.com/2012/08/website-travellerspointcom.html

Anyway, in a few weeks time I'm hoping to publish a review of the Ngorongoro Crater on the blog, but it was approximately 15 years ago when I visited the crater and unfortunately I don't have any photos. I am therefore looking for photos of the Ngorongoro Crater to use for the review and since there are loads of cool travel photos on Travellerspoint, I thought I would post on the forums to ask if anyone can help me out?

I would ideally like to start the review with a panoramic photo of the crater, and then maybe feature one or two wildlife photos further down the review, but I'd be grateful for any photos at all.

So far I've only made £0.04 from my blog, so I'd ideally prefer not to have to pay for any photo licences, but if anyone could provide photos I would be happy to post a thank you message at the end of the feature with a link to their photo albums on travellerspoint, or an alternative link if preferred.

Anyway, if anyone could help me out then I'd be totally grateful as I loved my visit to the Ngorongoro Crater so I'd like to review it on my blog, but the review wouldn't really capture how amazing the crater is without photos.

Those are the only two I have on Travellerspoint. I have a few more uploaded to my Smugmug account though (not sure if I'm allowed to link to it, but will give it a shot anyway!)

Unfortunately, it was really poor light conditions when I was there, so most of my photos in the crater are low quality. If any there interest you though, let me know and I'll upload them to TP without the watermark.

No problem for me:

You can check out my Tanzania photos, some of which have the Ngorongoro location.

The photos are from 2006 and of decent quality though not fantastic. I do like the ones with the lions and a few with cheetah. Also the one with wildebeests is nice. Hope you can use a few of them.

Thanks, Jennifer and Michael. These are excellent. I'm just looking for a few photos to capture the scene, rather than ultra high definition photos, so these are ideal for what I was looking for.

If it's okay Jennifer then I'd like to use your panoramic photo of the crater to start my review and then follow this up with a couple of your photos, Michael. Maybe the rhino and lioness photos which are cool, and possibly the cheetah as well if I can fit it in.

I'll link to your Travellerspoint photo album and blog, Michael, and to your Travellerspoint photos and also your Tales From The Backpack blog, Jennifer. And if there's anywhere else where you'd also like me to link to then just let me know. Cheers again.

Sounds like a solid plan;) And good luck again!
