Gate times in National Parks are always a curse for photographers. Most parks do not understand what photographer's need as far as timing goes but alas we are stuck with park rules wherever we travel through Africa. On this morning I shot out the gate at the Okaukuejo camp the moment it opened and headed out to one of the grassy plains in the hopes of catching some animals with the sun rising behind them.
I was in luck when I came across a group of Springboks at the very moment the first rays of golden light streamed across the flat grasslands of Etosha National Park. I came across this image this afternoon in my catalog and wondered to myself why it had escaped the big screen for so long but here it is finally. Hope you like it as much as I do.
