WALK THE LINE
Amboseli, Kenya 2019
This scene has being played out thousands of times under the gaze of Mount Kilimanjaro, but each lake crossing is different as the elephant groups will never have the same line up and the cloud patterns around the grand old volcano are never really the same. So each crossing of the dry lake of Amboseli is unique.
This photograph has a clean simplicity and it reminds me of what a spectacular place Amboseli can be. For many months over the last two years, the elephants have not crossed the lake as it has either been flooded or the ground has been too wet for an elephant to walk on. We have waited and waited for the arena to become dry and dusty again - that is how we know and like it. By late August 2019, normal service was resuming.
There are few ecosystems, where the seasonal weather and animal behaviour are now less predictable than in Amboseli, which is why moments such as this are to be treasured. When it gives as much as it did last week, it is my happy place.
