A departure from my usual Scottish Landscapes !
A very tender moment which made it very difficult to concentrate on my photography !
I shot this when we were on a self-drive safari in Kenya, a few years back, it was something of an ‘adventure’ on the roads and far more frightening than the wild animals !! With red dust everywhere…….!
My Thanks to Dan Mackenzie for encouraging me to add some of my wildlife shots !!
