As we drove out of our Lodge in Amboseli on the final morning at sunrise, there was a herd of Buffalo heading for the waterhole, kicking up the ever present dust. Their hooves made a wonderful sound in the silence.The scene lasted only seconds, but will be forever imprinted on my mind. The eternal struggle for existence,of many animals, to reach water, without being attacked by a predator, crossed my mind as I frantically shot my image.
I shot this from too far away for my liking, so I have cropped my original shot quite a bit, and it is a bit on the grainy side. Which suits this shot since it emulates the dust ! The mighty Kilimanjaro hardly discernable with the air full of sand !
I hope you like the atmosphere that I am attempting to convey here !
VIEW LARGE is best !!
There is a lone wildebeest in the herd of Buffalo.
