I used a Canon 400D (DSLR) to capture this image.
After taking it, I lightened the image slightly using the Windows Photos app.
The image was taken in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, on the evening of 5 September 2016. I chose this photo because I think it isn't something people see often in real life. The Wildebeest are fighting in the arid earth of a country suffering severe drought, and the dust plumes dramatically around them. It's scenes like these that make sad that so much of the world turns a blind eye to things like wildlife conservation, climate change and deforestation. If they could see how powerful, majestic and beautiful these creatures are, I'm sure they wouldn't choose to be so blind.
I grew up barefoot on the coast of South Africa. At 14, I left the wild Cape and moved to rural England, where I now live. I study Photography, Politics and Creative Writing at college and am passionate about wildlife and all forms of art.
