Dusk is by far my favourite time when visiting any game reserve or national park. It’s preceded by the most beautiful light for photography but when the sun starts to dip, touching the horizon, it’s like calm sets in on the bush. The cross over from day to night. When the daytime animals start to settle down and the night time animals wake up. After a hot day the coolness of evening brings relief while the wind often dies down. The best time of the day.
The picture was taken at Gwarrie Dam with the Zuurberg Mountains in the background while on a late afternoon game drive in Elephant National Park.
