Play of Light
A Giraffe stands perfectly silhouetted against the rising sun while the oxpeckers want to be part of the morning ride!
Scanning through the plains
These sisters scan through the plains for any movements even as the sun slid behind the clouds
A Sunrise... Perhaps a new beginning!
Every sunrise is a new beginning for these mammals as they would have lived for yet another day!
Band of Brothers!
When these young guns walk straight towards you, in a straight line! What must be going through in your mind?
A Reference Point! Who's taller?
A Giraffe stands out and tall, against an acacia, perhaps drawing a relative comparison of who's taller?
When the last rays touch down!
Even when those last rays of sun touch down, these hartebeest herd, are in their own world, without a care.. oblivious to certain realities
Calling it a day!
A Hartebeest, stands silhouetted against the setting sun, thinking about calling it a day! A riot of colours, dream setting. Well, I am lucky to be alive to witness such a spectacle!
After crossing the mighty Mara, these mammals found it hard to cross the Talek even as they get into a formation beyond our imagination!
Running for Cover
These Wildebeest run for the cover while kicking up a dust, not realising the fact that they are shining with the last rays of sun, as the evening comes to close
In the shadows....
Bahati, with her kill, when the shadows close on her, the last golden rays of the sun bathes her with all the joy, lighting her up partially!
In the rain... he sat quietly
Even as the clouds opened up with that light drizzle, he sat there quietly observing the last rays of the sun disappear ...Wonder what must be going on in his mind?
Yellow, standing tall!
Yellow, the current ruler of the other side of Talek, stands tall as he looks at the crossing wildebeest, planning for an attack
SkyScrapers of the Plains..
A typical skyscraper of the African plains.... the morning sun almost being kissed...and do you see anything else?
An abstract feeling?
What can a mother do, when her cub keeps putting her leg right on her face, neither sleeping nor letting her mom sleep?
A bond... that will never die...
Emotions flows.. overflows when you get to see these moments between a mother and her cub!
A Moment in thousand years!
I'd die to keep watching this moment, I'd come back alive to watch this moment...
She shines... she glows...she growls!
A late evening shot...when the queen of the plains walks and sits right in front of my jeep!
Right on his back!
What can the king do, when his son is right on his back? All he can do is offer a piggy ride..but for sure he wasn't happy though being in middle of an entire nursery!!
Catch me.. if you can!
When father and son plays, this is what happens! The cub had a fun time in being chased... by his father... What a loving moment this was
The King on the move!
What do you do when the King walks down the hill, when the sun shines right on him, wind blowing - I was frozen, I was lost and I was firing shutter ....
Father and Son
It is absolutely rare to find a male lion comforting his cub! Or the other way round! I was blessed to watch this king, being patient, emotions overflowing!
Watching the rain!
It pours, it rains... as though the wet clouds just come down! And this antelope looks on wondering what could these rains bring on them?
A Morning Magic
You can't come back without experiencing the magic of sunrise from the plains! I just can't get enough of it! Here you go! A Tommy stands silhouetted against a rising sun!
A High Key Image!
Scorching sun, sweltering heat and these mammals wander as though they are least bothered! A Different approach and treatment showcased in my work!
Those Legs that does not rest!
They keep walking.. they keep running.. These most iconic subjects of the plains are silhouetted against the setting sun ... Again, one of my favourite images made during this trip.
Proud Mother and Her 6 Furballs
It is very rare to see a mother cheetah with 6 cubs! I was blessed to spend an entire day watching this family! My prayers for their safety
Bahati holds on to her prey, like a stealth machine, she cornered this wildebeest, tightened her grip for a yummy supper!
and she walks on... with her prey
... after a successful hunt, Bahati, drags her kill, even, as the setting sun lights her up.. One of my favourite images made during this trip.
Yellow, the handsome fellow, husband of two beautiful queens - Fig and Kabusu, walks head-on, looking right into my eyes!
These blood brothers, up for a stroll on a cloudy morning.. they were together, determined to stay together...time will only tell...
Just when the sun starts to melt across the horizon, when the long shadows threaten to swallow the light, these iconic subjects, run for the night...
The Final March
These migrating wildebeest kicking up a dust storm as they run into the cover of darkness, may be their final march for the day... into the unknown!
