The caracal is a wild nocturnal cat, known to be very secretive and hard to observe. The photographer got a tip that a caracal had been sighted in a certain location in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and following a number of attempts driving up and down, there it was. The photographer managed to follow this female caracal for quite a long time, deep in its natural environment in this location between Botswana and South Africa..
Descend from Above
TIEN SANG KOK
Hundreds of horses are guided by the headmen, shrouded in a cloud of dust as they gallop forth. Photo taken in Mongolia.
Particles in the air like dust, warm breath on a cool day or drizzle usually go unnoticed. However, in the right light, for example a beam of sunlight, we realize how dusty our environment is. To capture this effect, the camera must be facing the light with the subject positioned in such a way that both the camera and background are in shadow. This phenomenon can add magic to even the simplest subject matter.
