@natgeo reached 100 million followers! This is my most #NatGeo inspired photo for the #natgeo100contest . Taken in the Maasai Mara, Kenya on July 21st 2017. My husband @themalibuartist chose this spot for sunset. It's amazing how things work out. There's no way we could have planned the wildebeest to stand at that spot as the sun went down. It was so exciting and a moment that will stay with me forever.
The King of Naboisho. Challenged by #Nikon in #PursuitOfLight , the Maasai Mara really delivered. This was taken using the new #Z7 ; I've never enjoyed such detail. The depth this powerful little camera produces is unparalleled. Taken just after sunrise, I pushed the ISO capabilities and man, did the Z7 deliver. I've never seen sharpness like it.

An Indomitable Soul:
I have always taken umbrage to the naming of individual wild animals, I feel that it puts emphasis on certain creatures and in many regards, anthropomorphizes them. However, history has taught us that there will always be those beings that transcend our imagination into a realm reserved for the gods… and those beings, those majestic creatures that completely capture our hearts and minds, deserve to be named. There was Elsa, the incredible lioness who defied all the odds in the quest for her freedom, or Machli, the famous crocodile killing tigress who ruled the jungles of India, then there is Deep Blue, the largest great white shark ever recorded, and let’s not forget Tim ,the magnificent elephant tusker who has stakes his claim as one of the most magnificent creatures to have ever walked this planet. These are just some of the incredible creatures that have transcended belief into an almost fable like existence. However, there is one majestic being that may very well surpass all before him. He rules the great wilds of the most famous wilderness in the world, the Mara, and he simply goes by the name… SCAR.

“Fierce” “Companion” “Focused” “Present”
May I be more like the lion.
When pursuing goals and dreams may I be fierce.
May I be a faithful and loving companion to those around me.
When I must determine my directions and impact may I be focused.
And when it comes time to rest, may I bask in the sunlight, fully present in the moment. .
