"At the end of the dry season, the waterhole at Okaukuejo in Estosha National Park was attracting a steady stream of animals coming to drink in the cool of the night. This included many Black Rhinoceros which would stand motionless at the water's edge, allowing long exposure images to be taken in the floodlighting provided by the adjacent lodge. Even while the animals drank they would stay still enough to take exposures lasting a few seconds. At times the wind would drop enough for a reasonable reflection to form in the waters of the waterhole."
