Open Edition




On arriving in Kenya’s Mara North in what typically is a dry part of the season, I was told it had been unforeseeably wet. Torrential rain led to some camps being flooded, roads impassable and the grass extremely long. Typically on landing in the Mara, my guide asks me for my focus. My response is normally predictable in that of ‘male lion’ but instantly I could see from a photographic point of view the extremely long grass could prove problematic for the photographs I had in mind and so this time my response was zebra. Despite their numbers, zebra do not come without their own photographic challenges. They can be shy and flighty subjects and so remarkably only with 50+ hours of trying, was this particular photograph possible. Any guide who can wait with their guest for this long with herds of zebra has a huge amount of patience and understanding.
