Cape Buffalo, Horn of Africa by Nick Dale

Picture Story

One of the good things about being on safari in a conservancy is that you don't have to leave at dusk, and you can also drive off-road to get the picture you want. That really helps when you're trying to get sunrise or sunset shots. In January 2021, I spent 10 days at Kicheche Bush Camp in the Masai Mara with wildlife photographer and guide Paul Goldstein. One morning, it was very misty, so we went out early on our game drive and desperately tried to find some big animals before the mist cleared. Fortunately, we spotted this Cape buffalo, and we were able to take a few pictures of it against the misty sunrise. We had to work fast before the light or the weather conditions changed, but I had the advantage of using a very long lens (800mm!), so I was able to get this close-up of the buffalo in silhouette against the rising sun.
