This panoramic view of the Milkyway arched over some Baobab trees was imaged by superimposing six twenty five second exposure portrait photographs captured on a moonless night at Kubu Island in Botswana's Makgadikgadi Pans.
Equipment: Canon 5D MK III Canon 16-35mm F2.8 L II USM Lens ISO 3200 25 sec at F2.8 Cable Releas and Tripod Support
I have been enchanted by wildlife and the natural world for as long as I can remember, and now wildlife photography is my avocation and obsession.
Capturing images in their natural beauty alone has never been enough for me, as nature has its own stories to tell. They spring from the things I see and the events I witness. They may be told by a pack of dogs, a wildebeest on the horizon or a bird in the sky. I slow my pace to uncover them using my camera like a writer uses a pen.
