There’s nothing quite like the last touch of light painting stark silhouettes across the African sky. A giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) just seems to glide across the landscape before being swallowed in the fast gathering gloom.

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.
