Title: The Golden Statue

Date: 26 June 2016

Location: Zimanga Private Game Reserve, Mkuze, KZN.

Description: I was photographing from an overnight hide early evening as the sunlight had just faded, when a white rhino had come down to drink. Being barely metres away from my hide to this beautiful creature was such a humbling and incredible experience. The stillness of the rhino and the resulting light i believe reveals an unusual “Golden Statue” effect.

Name: White Rhino

Camera: Canon 7dmk2  Lens: Sigma 24mm-35mm  Apperture: f4  Shutter speed: 1/1600  ISO 1600

The Amateur Wildlife and Birding Photography Competition has prizes worth R184400 up for grabs!
