Darkest Before Dawn

By NickDale    
A backlit male Cape buffalo stands turning his head towards the camera in the gloomy, early morning light. His body is in silhouette, and the sun is rising above the misty horizon behind. Shot with a Nikon D810 at Kicheche Bush Camp in Kenya in January 2021.
ISO 220, 800mm, f/5.6, 1/1000
