The Wise One
Photo By Thomas Piekunka

  • Title: The Wise One
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Rwanda
  • Nearest Area: Volcanoes National Park
  • Nearest Town: Kigali
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: We woke to pouring rain but thankfully it stopped by the time we started our hike. We hiked for 3 hours through muddy forest and were rewarded with an hour stay with a family of mountain gorilla. I couldn't believe how close we were to them. This shot was taken within 15 feet of this "Wise One".

    Thank you very much, Alena! Before planning your visit, do make sure to check park hours, as this area is not open to the public year-round.

    Lovely composition of greenery and water motion, Alena. I especially like the textured waterfall curtain effect you have captured.

    Thank you kindly Laura! Getting ready to head out to try for the first time some "Astro/Night" photography there on the coast!) I really enjoyed the article here on O.P., and have been inspired...
