“I saw this large herd of buffalo approaching the water from the other side of the river. It was fairly chaotic, as buffalo herds always appear to be, but a pattern started to emerge over time. Individuals would enter from the left, drink and then move out to the right. It made for a lovely scene but not a great photo. I waited, taking a couple of test shots to check my camera’s settings because I was shooting into the light and I knew the exposure would be tricky. After some time, 3 buffalo separated themselves from the herd and came to drink in a perfect pattern. I knew that was the moment and took a single shot. The dust that they kicked up and the inclusion of a crocodile lurking in the water just completed the scene for me. Canon EOS 1D Mk IV, 500mm f4 L IS lens, f8, 1/2000sec at ISO 800. Post processing: contrast enhancement to compensate for shooting into the light, added some colour saturation, cropped (I envisaged the shot as a letterbox shape so framed close to the top of the viewfinder, knowing that I’d cut off most of the beach below, and excluding the sky which would have confused the exposure). Resized and sharpened.”
