I’m looking forward to the release of this surely very fascinating book.
In these spectacular photographs taken in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara Natural Reserve in Kenya, Anup Shah reveals African wildlife as never before, through the use of remote hidden cameras planted across the plains.
Organized by season from January through December, here is life on the plains in all its dynamism and vitality.
Readers find themselves literally face-to-face with hyenas and cheetahs as they feed on a kill; elephants communing at a watering hole; playful lion cubs; wildebeests hauling themselves out of a river; a leopard growling a warning; and inquisitive monkeys gazing at their reflections in the camera lens. Many of these animals have noticed the camera, to them an odd device that makes a strange clicking sound.
Captions written by Shah tell the story of the daily ebb and flow of life on the African plains.
The book will be published in September this year
The photographs here, taken in 2010 with a camera disguised as a rock, capture the minutes a quiet drink of a herd of zebras at the watering hole in the Masaai Mara game reserve is shattered by the approaching big cat.
