Description: Safari vehicle under a shade tree with clouds swirling from the tree into the sky.

Story from behind the lens: This photo is of a mid morning game drive breakfast. I initially intended to just document breakfast under the tree. When I stepped back from the vehicle I saw the scene was much more than I expected. It was a minimalist landscape dominated by the sky with a swirl of three clouds appearing to emanate clockwise from the tree .

I don't know whether this image is eligible since it doesn't contain any wildlife. The entry rules indicate that landscapes are permitted so I thought I'd submit it for review. When in doubt let the judges decide. I have no objection if the entry is deemed not to meet the entry requirements. I understand that the rules may be intended to mean landscapes with wildlife.
