Fine Art Friday–Under African Skies, South Africa

Cue up the Paul Simon…today’s image continues with last week’s themes–travel and tranquility.  I had fun playing with the composition of this photograph, which was taken during one of those wonderful moments where the sun sets just as the moon rises (also wonderful because we were stopped for “sundowners,” aka sunset cocktails!)  Just before our game drive raced in for the night, I held my breath to steady the camera as the light faded.  I can still feel the heightened sense of fear and vulnerability as darkness fell in the wild– you huddle a little closer to the inside of the truck and jump a bit at distant lion roars, bird calls, and rustling grass.

love this one Sarah! It really captures the stillness that can happen when you surrounded by nature. Thanks for sharing!
