Photographer's Note

I just come back from an unforgettable trip to Kenya.

This scene was taken at sunset in Amboseli, one of the southern Kenya park where one can see the Kilimanjaro in the background adding a supernatural atmosphere to the Nature wonders we see around. Here, we passed by a small group of elephants nearby a dustcloud creating a nice effect agains the sun.

I never thought that it was possible to see so many animals in the same place and it made my previous Safari in Northern Cameroun a funny remembrance.

The country itself was incredible with its kind people, extremely various places. We felt very close from the people we met.

It happened that we where there during the Presidential elections. We where told that massive frauds where about to happen in a country which where driving toward Democracy. I just read that after the former President Kibaki was elected again, 18 people where killed in various demonstrations around Nairobi. The United States just congratulated the President while the European Union just issued doubts about the veracity of the result. I just hope this is not a new country going backward in the Democracy path.
