The Masai Mara is situated to the east of Lake Victoria in the so-called East African Rift of the Great Rift Valley.
There are many geological, climatic and other environmental consequences of being situated on this geographic fault line. From a photographic point of view the many ridges and sharp escarpments in the area provide opportunities for silhouette images and images with clear and uniform backgrounds. This image, showing the silhouetted outlines of giraffes against the setting sun, is a typical example.
This image was captured in the Masai Mara conservancy, south west Kenya, East Africa.
