Panorama by @babaktafreshi
The World at Night project
Swipe left for this 4-part panorama of Kilimanjaro in moonlight. Photography of wild life is not easy in natural night light due to their motion in long exposure, but the main challenge is to find and frame them properly at night in a telephoto lens, while you have to use all senses on any approaching noise, to avoid an encounter with a big predator!
Here you find two Giraffes, acacia trees, and head of a zebra (under the main giraffe). They were totally invisible to my eyes but revealed in this 2-sec exposure.
The main peak of Kilimanjaro is Kibo that reaches 5,895 m (19,341 ft). The smaller peak Mawenzi is 5,149 m high (16,893 ft). @babaktafreshi explore more of our planet’s wonders at night.
Sorry I haven’t posted anything from my trip - I just haven’t really felt like it. Anyway, if you look closely, you can see TWO babies suckling from this elephant in the marsh. They are not twins, but it was special to see this. Elephants are amazingly perfect animals ❤️🐘
If you think this photo sucks, don’t blame @michael.laubscher because he hadn’t yet helped me get my settings in order. If you do you like it, don’t credit Mike because hadn’t done anything yet 😂😂😂
DID YOU KNOW ... elephants have five toes that are hidden within the flesh of the foot. The toe nails (4 nails on their front feet and 3 in the back) are not actually attached to the toes and are made of keratin, the same cells as human hair and fingernails.
