Ewaso Nyiro Herd


Photographed at 9:43 am on 29 April, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.


ISO 200, 1/1600 sec., f/5, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.




As I'd never visited Samburu, the level of animal activity along the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River was a pleasant surprise. Birds, impala, lions and elephants came to drink.


Seeing this image several years hence brings to mind the sense of being in a magical place that I experienced when these elephants arrived to quaff their prodigious thirst.
