East Africa has been hit by the hardest drought for many years, and many parts of Kenya haven’t seen rain since 2007. The game parks are fields of death where animal carcasses lie spread about like warnings of impending doom. A few more years, and the grasslands will be irreparable deserts.
This image is from Amboseli. I chose black and white for two reasons. One to enhance the gravity in the images, the second because the fool that I am forgot to reset the ISO to 100. As you all know, ISO 1600 is not good for noise, especially on an Olympus. But bad as it seemed at the time, the conversion to B&W seemed to work. This is the first of four images in a series.
