Description: In Mara, one of the two Cheetah brothers walked up to a small mound and the sun was setting down. Then I got a good chance get this beautiful frame.

Story from behind the lens: Me and my daughter waited for the entire day following the two cheetah brothers. It had been a long and tiring day and we had started to loose hope for any hunting or action shots because they were sleeping for almost the entire day. Suddenly almost at 5pm in the evening both of them started waking up. One of the two brothers walked up a small mound and relaxed there. After taking a few daylight shots I noticed that the sun was setting so I told my guide to go to the other side of the mound so the sun would set behind the cheetah forming a beautiful silhouette making it worth the wait. In my dreams I thought of getting this type of shot specifically at Mara but never did I even imagine it would happen in real life.
