It’s always a challenge when working in the field, I am my own worst critic and there is self-imposed pressure to succeed.
I am an artist, not a National geographic photographer therefore I am looking for a degree of abstraction and interpretation rather than simply ‘recording’ what lays in front of me.
It is tough, but with patience and having learnt to impose oneself on a situation rather than letting the situation impose itself on me, anything is possible.
My metadata shows that this image was taken after 2hrs 17mins with these beautiful creatures. A split second of magic turned a mental image into a psychical image, but had I not imposed myself and employed my determination we would have gone home empty handed.
