Special Group Discounts' "The sun started to come up, but the day was completely cloudy, so there was no direct light on the rock," Cheater recalls. "We were wet, cold and feeling extremely disappointed when, suddenly, there was a gap in the clouds. The sun broke through momentarily not more than 15 or 20 seconds with a brilliant, orange-yellow light that set the rock on fire and illuminated the desert bushes in the foreground. "I just had time to make three exposures, varying the lens and shutter-speed settings.

Then the sun went behind the clouds, and that was it." 3's company in Cuzco Not only the scenes you see but the people you meet can make memorable travel pictures that bring your visual record alive, as with Michelle Ford's charming 1990 prizewinner.

The woman, although in a hurry, was willing to have her picture taken in exchange for a small tip. Ford selected a location in front of an ancient Inca stone wall that made a non-distracting background, then adjusted the 70-2 10mm zoom lens on her 35mm Nikon 2020 camera to about the 100mm setting for a frame-filling horizontal composition. The little group held still just long enough for two exposures on Fuji-chrome 100 film, one that caught the llama's comical, seemingly pleased expression a touch of whimsy that makes this picture stand out from the ordinary.

One way to do this is by participating in one of the many photographic workshops being offered at attractive locations nationwide this summer.

Although workshops and instruction can help you make better pictures, the quality of the photographs taken often is directly related to the intensity of a travel experience. Cultivate a state of relaxed alertness. Expect the unexpected. Be open to serendipitous gifts: If you believe in them, they'll often come to you. But keep travel photography in perspective because, alter all, it is only the record however valuable of an experience, not the reality.

It would be a pity to become so absorbed in your photography that you miss the pleasure of the living moment itself.

Signature Mail Submissions To: Photo Contest, National Geographic Traveler, P.O. Box 98013, Washington, DC 20090-8013 HOW TO, from pageTl He was out in a Land-Rover on a game drive in Chobe National Park, Botswana, when the group came upon a lioness with four cubs feeding on a waterbuck. Estep was seated in the rear of the open-sided vehicle nearest the lioness, with a Minolta 35mm single-lens reflex camera loaded with Kodachrome 200 film. Annoyed at the interruption, the lioness signaled her cubs to move away, then suddenly turned and charged straight at Estep. "I already had my camera ready and up to my eye," he says.

"I took one shot. She paused and made a second charge, and I snapped again. I didn't have time to change to a telephoto lens but just shot with the standard lens I had on the camera. She came as near to me as about 6 or 8 feet, giving me a close-up view." Fortunately for Estep, the lioness was only making what the guide called "false charges" to drive the interlopers away. Was Estep frightened? "Yes I was, but I didn't realize it at the time." The lioness left, and Estep returned home with a vivid travel memory and a once-in-a-lifetime close-up of eyeball-to-eyeball ferocity.

Ayers the rock! Serendipitous photographic opportunities provided by changing lighting effects or a fleeting mood of nature also call for fast reflexes and a sense of timing, as happened to Mark Cheater with his 1991 prizewinning picture of Ayers Rock, an Australian landmark. Cheater, an editor for an environmental institution, visited Australia during an around-the-world trip with his wife. Leaving their desert campground before dawn on a drizzly day, they hitchhiked 10 miles to the site. Cheater was using a 35mm Nikon N-2000 camera with a 28mm (wide-angle) lens and Kodachrome 200 film. He set up his camera on a lightweight backpacker's tripod and waited for the sun to rise.
