Interesting shot. How often will an animal, especially one that isn't tame, stand square on to you and in perfect symetry? It is perfectly stright and you can't see it's rear legs.
Beautiful photo. Just another wonderful animal created by God. Striking a pose to remind the world.Thanks for sharing your awesome experience.
This was truly a special moment and its very humbling to be on the same page as Sergey Gorshkov and Paul Nicklen.
The combination of the giant giraffe and the clouds leads us to deram-like spectacular African safari world...
Nice, but would look better if it were cropped so that you only see the clouds and the head of the giraffe.
Super nice pic! The best & ONLY way an animal should be shot is with a camera!!!!! That's why I always keep my Canon loaded.
@E. Schneider I disagree. I think the layers of colors make this photo so much more spectacular.
@Roland Umphrey My weapon of choice is a Nikon but otherwise I couldn't agree with you more ;)
