This is Big Nigrescens, a spot in the Timbavati region of South Africa, through which we had passed during a morning game drive.
I wanted to capture stunning silhouettes of jagged, dead trees against the magnificent night sky over Africa.
After some fantastic wildlife spotting and photography, including pursuit of a leopardess on a stalk some thirty minutes earlier, we returned to Big Nigrescens where I shot this image and a few others in the pitch blackness of a warm African night.
