Artist's Description

This Arusha National Park ranger was not exactly my image of what an armed guide would look like but what the heck! With no large predators in the park, the ancient single shot rifle was only carried in case a cranky buffalo decided he didn’t like tourists in his territory and even then a single shot in the air would have scared him off if he decided to charge. The warthog in the background is no danger – warthogs are timid creatures.

In the background is Mt Meru (4566 metres), the second highest mountain in Tanzania (Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest).

Camera – Nikon D80; Lens – Tamron 28-300 VC zoom
