Entry Description

During a stay in Kenya's Maasai Mara Reserve I was drawn to the graphic shapes and slow-motion antics of these charismatic gentle giants of the African plains. I opted for low viewpoints with the giraffes high on the horizon and presented the silhouettes in monochrome to emphasize these qualities.

About Photographer

Through my Nature and Landscape photography I aim to celebrate the beauty and mystery inherent in the natural world and hopefully open the eyes and minds of others to its wonders, encouraging them to slow down and relish the bounty that surrounds us.
