The three heads

The symmetry of the placing of the heads was just perfect.

Wonderful. The moment you capture here is very rare.

Behind The Lens

I took the photo in the Masai Mara Kenya
It was the 31st of may at 15.50h.
It had been a rainy day. The sky opened from where the sun was setting. The beautiful late afternoon sun lit the giraffes
I shot this picture from the roof of the car, using a bean bag to support my lens. I used a Canon 5D MIV, Lens: Canon 200-400mm with a build in extender
We were on a photo safari and we are always looking for great light and special moments. Sometimes the two come together.
I post-processed in Lightroom. The picture was landscape and I turned it into portrait. Further only slight adjustments where made on the RAW picture
In my camera bag
When I am on safari I carry: Camera's: 2 x Canon 5D MIV, 1x Canon 80D Lenses: Canon 70-200mm F2.8, Canon 200-400mm with build in extender (F4.0) and a Canon 24-70mm F4.0 A tripod A Canon flash 2 bean bags And cleaning equipement
Always look for wonderful light (most of the time the beginning or the end of the day) and the special moments in animal behaviour (funny or special face, situation or behaviour).
