Behind the Frame: Tsavo Giraffe, The moon and Anti-crepuscular rays

Have you ever had one of those moments where you are out in the field and you find yourself in awe of the scene before you?

This was how I felt when we were making our way back to the lodge during an afternoon game drive during the Essential Amboseli & Tsavo Photo Safari earlier this year. The sun had set, the moon was rising and the anti-crepuscular rays were seemingly converging above two giraffe in the foreground.

The scene was absolutely beautiful, but difficult to photograph!

Ideally I would have loved to have been able to get closer to the giraffe but that wasn’t possible. I still love the sense of scale that this image provides though and although nothing I could have done could have done justice to the scene that lay before us that evening, it does a pretty good job of giving one an idea of how special this moment was.

My love for the bush and conservation took me on journey which would not only allow me to explore the continent which fascinates me so much, but to share my passion for photography and conservation with others.
