Bob Jnr (BJ) and his son spending some quality time together one late afternoon on a Kopje (rock outcrop) in Eastern Serengeti. B&W conv in PS CC.

So very happy that after nearly 2 yrs locked up in "fortress OZ" our beloved Govt has finally granted us amnesty to travel overseas!
I'll be back in the Serengeti to document the Wildebeest calving season late FEB........cannot wait!

Clever title and beautiful image under that moody sky, Marc!  I'm so glad to hear you will soon have your freedom to travel to beloved Africa again.  Give her my love!  :)   I shall look forward to seeing what you bring back.

A superlative shot, magnificent choice of black and white, the sky is beautiful, the composition and attitude of these splendid animals.
You always present beautiful images that speak of the places visited. It is a bit like being able to discover them for me too.

This is really an exciting shot- so different and dynamic with that dramatic sky, and the two of them looking down at something, it seems. Excellent!
