This couldn´t be better. The Rhino with the black background of the lake.. a delight for the eyes.
I hope the fire didn´t spread.

JiCé Sowa on November 11, 2012

Thank you Eva for this new comment. I'm very happy you appreciate my composition. But the picture is not perfect because the rhino has moved an ear during this long exposure (1.3s). The right ear is a little blurred... Concerning the fire, it lasted two weeks... but it happens very often in these regions and it's part of the life cicle ;-)

Imagine, I hadn´t noticed the blurred ear. It really doesn´t matter, at least not to me...The photo is impressive.

Thank you Eva. I remember I've had to wait a long time and take many shots to get this one ;-)
Kind regards from France,

En miniature, je ne m'étais pas rendu compte de cette scène et de la beauté ou plutôt cruauté de l'instant... Celle-ci file tout droit dans mes favorites.

Le rhinocéros de dos, qui semble rester couac devant ce spectacle de désolation, c'est exceptionnel.

YSL & très bon WE

Un grand merci Philippe pour ce commentaire précis, c'est bon de savoir ce que tu perçois en voyant mon image.
Bonne fin de WE à toi ;-)
Amicalement,
