Sweet Spot

Hold Your Breath! These Photos totally changed Our Perception of the Yankari Game Reserve | Kureng Workx Photography




We grew up hearing about the Yankari National Park but not so many people have actually been to this place that is a National Heritage.

For those who don’t know, it’s a large wildlife park located in the south-central part of Bauchi State and is home to several natural warm water springs, as well as a wide variety of flora and fauna

Talented photographer Kureng Workx (he took Dewy Oputa’s beautiful photos recently) decided to reignite our love for the oudoors and where better to start than at home.

In these underwater photos, one wonders the amount of time and creativity that went into taking the shots as one of the models is even seen dining under water.

    Wow. I’ve always wanted to know, how do they take these underwater pics? Like how do the models breathe and pose?

    Nigerians rarely travel around naija – Everybody wants to choke Lagos, which honestly is a very ugly city with nothing interesting to show except bar beach et al.
    Yankari is an amazing place back in the days…not sure how it looks now….Tons of beautiful places in naija…trust me,.You will be amazed if you decide to explore….I was in Taraba and Adamawa states few years ago and couldn’t believe that we have mind blowing landscapes in the North and middle belt regions…
    Cross river state has amazing rainforests ..Akwa Ibom has one of the best beaches that I have seen in subsahara africa….Beautiful beautiful places….If you love the outdoors as much as I do, you sure would love these places.
    Nigeria is really a very beautiful country – unfortunately my region, south east is land locked and nothing really to see…except isi ewu and nkwobi joints everywhere…Nothing to do actually…

      Hahaha @ isiewu and nkwobi. Well I have been to one town in ANAMBRA. By the shores of river Niger. I couldn’t believe what I saw. A nice beach but people are messing it up. Our problem is we do not harness or develop what we have and it’s unfortunate. I’m in plateau and we have lovely places to visit here. I pray the five starts thinking of deeloping the tourism sector soonest. Bravo to you

    Only one of these pictures is top notch, the quality of the other ones can be so much better. Maye he is using a low-end DSLR camera or his photo editing is not good enough. Or maybe, the photographer isn’t at the peak of his craft yet.

    Lies. I saw these pictures elsewhere and behind the lady was the silhouette of a shark. That picture has been conveniently removed from here. Photo shopped.

      I was wondering why the model wasn’t mentioned.
      How many people fit model under water.
      Kudos Gazelle. ….I’m proud of you.
      You make modelling look beautiful.
