Story from behind the lens: After a failed attempt of a Hartebeest which they had to let go due to a hyena attack, the 4 boys spent an hour scanning the savannah (near Tipilikwani area). During that time they were very exposed to a large zebra herd which they tried to hunt but in vain. They walked a few minutes to enter on top of this beautiful setting - a vantage point for both them and the photographer. The sky, the mound, their differentially focussed direction all meant that this was a frame to capture. As Jonathan Scott summed it up in his FB comment of this image "Your photograph captures something of the intensity and tension they bring to a scene at times. " That perfectly sums up the moment.
