Mara Sunrise “I have been dreaming of this image for many years, Giraffe being silhouetted perfectly by the African sunrise. I spend a month in the famed Masai Mara in search of the image. My client and I left before sunrise in search of our subjects and luckily for us we found a small journey of giraffe slowly walking to an open plain. We immediately got into position and waited patiently for the sun to make an appearance. The first 2 giraffes crossed and for a split second one of them turned around to keep on eye on the rest of the journey.” Photographed by guide Marius Coetzee (mariuscoetzee.com) in the Mara, Kenya.
