Essence of Life
Kubu Island, Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana
The remains of new life, delicate and fragile, blown across the barren landscape of the Makgadikgadi salt pans in Botswana. Flamingo's breed in their thousands on these salt pans, a harsh environment, demanding and hostile. The Flamingo egg was no more than fifteen centimeters from my camera. I used focus stacking for increased depth of field and filters to complete my vision for a photograph I feel is unique to the Makgadikgadi, showcasing the essence of life in this harsh environment.
