This was the culminations of many years of thinking about the dead lake at Amboseli, I had visited this spot twice before in my life. I knew the sort of shots I wanted, I knew animals must cross this lake in numbers, but I had never really seen a great number of animals doing so. Back in Australia I had thought about when and where the animals would cross and I started formulating a plan of attack for when I got back to Amboseli again.


So now I was back in Amboseli and applying my plan of attack and after a morning of searching and exploring, dodging grassy bogs, I finally hit the jackpot, I’d found access to the dead lake and it had plenty of wildlife activity, I felt like I was in the very dry section of the Garden of Eden and miraculously the magic of Amboseli started to unfold in front of me. Over the next four days I photograph varying combinations and numbers of animals from elephants, wildebeests, zebras, gazelles, lion and oryx’s. Amazingly everyday was different, showing me the beautiful moods and characters of Amboseli.


One of the images I had dreamt in my head was animals crossing the dead lake in a wash of heat haze, it was just so satisfying being able to bring that image in my head to life. These zebras look absolutely awesome walking in the heat haze, I love the fact that you have a group of three zebras then another group of three zebras in the distance. Its like the heat haze has created a mirage of the front three zebras in the background.
