One World In Focus Theme - First Place Robin Moore
“This shot was taken in Laikipia, Kenya, a stronghold for both black and white rhinoceros. I saw this beautiful and large white rhino lying down with an oxpecker on its flank and stopped to shoot it; under a brooding sky, I felt there was potential for a dramatic black-and-white image. As two zebras approached, I waited until one had passed and one was approaching the rhino. I decided to lay down for the shot, putting the rhino and zebra on the same plane against the sky, and closed the aperture a little to get the rhino and zebras in focus. I wanted to capture a feeling of drama and majesty and to accentuate the size of the rhino under a dramatic overcast sky.”

How far would you go for a tree? I flew halfway around the world for one. If this seems crazy to you please realize that this is no ordinary tree. Nay, it’s the famous Wanaka Willow, quite possibly the coolest tree I’ve seen. It’s like a bonzai on steroids, with gracefully sculpted limbs and the most amazing location ever. Growing directly out of one of the most scenic lakes on the planet, this tree is worth traveling for. Especially in April when the willow’s golden Fall foliage shines brightly against Lake Wanaka’s deep blues.
