Buffalo Morning

Buffalo (Syncerus caffer) enjoying a few Kigalia flowers while basking in the early morning sun. This small group was part of a much larger herd moving to water in the early morning. Like their domestic ‘cousins’, buffalo use a series of distinctive vocal calls to initiate herd activity, while in transit, threatened or drinking and grazing.

Panning is the horizontal movement of the camera, following a moving object that is kept in a constant position in the viewfinder, while taking an image, intended to give a strong sense of speed or movement.

“Only a fraction of the camera’s possibilities interests me – the marvellous mixture of emotion and geometry, together in a single instant.”

– Henri Cartier-Bresson

  1. Good evening pic.
    Please why such a high ISO 4000. Does “noise” not come into play?
