“From dusk till dawn”. Animal African silhouette pictures
Photographer-naturalist Greg du Toit made a series of images of silhouettes of animals on the South and East Africa. In his project, he wanted to show the mysterious beauty of Africa.
These photographs are part of a larger project “From dusk till dawn”, filmed in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia.
Lions, giraffes, elephants, flamingos, leopards, rhinos and zebras photographed in the backlight of sunset and sunrise.
“I just want to convey the incredible diversity, mystery and wonder that I see in the wild. With the silhouette photos, the camera is able to remove all the excess,” — said du Toit Agency Media Drum.
Greg du Toit specializiruetsya species pictures under low lighting for hours waiting for the perfect moment for a picture.
In 2013, Greg du Toit was awarded the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his photo “Essence of elephants”.
Two photographs from the series “From dusk till dawn” shows a wounded wildebeest, fleeing from the fires that engulfed grassland in the East African region of the Serengeti, most of which are nature reserves.
“We have noticed an antelope, which ran from the fire. On closer examination we saw that she has a broken front left leg. I watched in horror as the fire almost reached the animal. But it still ran,” says Greg du Toit.
