In January we visited one of my favourite destinations, Addo Elephant Park. It was a sweltering hot day with temperatures nearly reaching 40’C . We were on our sunset drive as this zebra crossed the road in front of us. He looked as tired and hot as we felt, certainly looking forward to the prospect of some cool evening air,
I could not resist the beautiful lighting and soulfulness of his expression.

“Growing up near the coast, I have always had a special affinity for the ocean, The movement of light and reflection, and the almost lifelike motion of white water fascinate me.
I love trying to capture the richness of colours and tones in nature with loose, fluid brush work.”
