Description: Grazing Topis on the horizon on a cloudy day before the rain

Story from behind the lens: When I saw the gathering clouds I realised I have an opportunity to capture the scene with a dramatic effect by changing my camera/lens settings. We moved to a spot where I can incorporate an acacia tree in my composition. We then waited for some animals to enter the scene. We had to reposition the vehicle a few times to get a desired horizon shot with the Topis, lying low inside the vehicle. The ever changing nature across the Mara plains never ceases to amaze us. A beautiful place on earth.
