When shooting in the Kruger Park I often complain that you just can’t get the right sun angle. You are unable to leave the road so you just have to do with the light angle or not bother to capture an image. However, sometimes you are very lucky. In this instance the sun was just rising and the light angle on the subject was perfect. Real golden light. The image was captured from the causeway just outside of  Shingwedzi rest camp.
