Giraffe silhouette photograph

Send to Kindle

A beautiful photograph of a giraffe with beautiful sunset. The Giraffe is unknown outside of Africa and early written records described the giraffe as “magnificent in appearance, bizarre in form, unique in gait, colossal in height and inoffensive in character.”

    This is an incredible image – a hallmark of tropical African sunset! It reminds me of an evening nearly 50 years back when I was hitch-hiking between Nairobi & Mombasa. The last ride before the afternoon ended saw me outside a sprawling farm on the outskirts of Nairobi National Park! The scene was uncanilly similar but with the added bonus of a heard of elephants as they ambled on into the sunset whilst enjoying their evening meal of acacia & other African shrub! I moved closer to the farm gate along the main road as it was becoming dark and it was getting dangerous with all those wild animals around! Finally I got a ride around mid-night. It was scarey at the time but the sunset scenery with the giraffe & the heard of elephants stayed seared in my psyche! Thanks for giving me a free ride into the corridors of my past days in Africa. God bless you..
