Story from behind the lens: Early afternoon in October, as a storm was brewing up. We were looking for a leopard who vanished into a bush minutes earlier. As we crossed the luggar and came out on the open plain, we were surprised with this beautiful scenery, a tower of 10 giraffes, perfectly set up on the horizon.
