I love how perfect everything looks in this photograph. The rule of thirds, the brilliant framing of the tree. The beautiful 'posing' of the animal.. No wonder you got 3rd place in the NG photo contest =)

This photo pulls me in to it. Before I even see the photo: I see the wide openness of the her world. I yearn to walk across her land. The photo: Your photo captures her grandeur. I want to see what she is seeing, the way she sees it. And the colors: The yellows of the tree, the veld, and the cat; make me think, if only in a fantasy, that I might be able to see like she does.

I just learned of your adventures today. To say that I love your photography is, of course, an understatement! There are so many I will be commenting on in the days to come, but I just had to stop and comment now on this one. Love, love, love the composition of the shot. Simply stunning! How I wish I could have shared in your cheetah adventure!!!!

Beautiful candid nature shot. I adore shots like this where you can just tell it is truly wild or at least in its natural environment. I love how you captured this cheetah's vantage point. Almost looks like he could be an extra limb on the tree. I love how its bit of a distant view and you get an idea of this lone cheetah and the true size and vastness of the Savannah he is surveying.
