Stillness of a Serengeti Morning by 

The sun peaks out over distant hills. Lays eyes on the open plains of The Serengeti. All is still. All is as it should be. Another morning in Africa.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    So beautiful xx

  • Thank you Lynn. I’m generally more of a night person. Until I went to Africa… where the call of the wild and the beauty of a new day inspired me to rise before dawn so I wouldn’t miss a single, special moment. Now that is the power of Nature! ;-)

  • This is a rather simple composition for the grandeur that is Africa. But that simplicity is personally powerful for me. Your featuring this feature means so much. Thank you very much Kobus. …Sylvia
