Yowazza, he’s quick! I had the burst set at 5 shots per second while this white rhino in Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya was peacefully sleeping under a tree. He was surrounded by buffalo which were quietly milling around. When his head came up, I pressed the shutter—I got only two shots, none of him actually coming to his feet. I sure wouldn’t have wanted to be closer to this monster.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
