Description: The sun illuminates a lone elephant

Story from behind the lens: We came upon a lone elephant feeding in the early morning and our amazing guide helped align us with the beauty unfolding before us. It was a rare opportunity for an infrequent visitor to Kenya to see a scene of such enchantment, where nature seemed to be blessing the wildlife. There was a lot of maneuvering to get into the right position for this, and without our guide and the excellent mentoring I had received I might have missed it.
