I am delighted to let you know that my photograph “Swimming for Life” has received a Highly Commended Award in the Magical Nature – Nature Photography of the Year 2019 (Slovenia).
This year the contest received 4,400 images created by photographers from totally 43 different countries.
My image shows three of the five cheetah brothers with high risk crossing the Talek River in Maasai Mara in Kenya. This unique situation took place in January 2020.
A great tribute to Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp. Without good guides who also are experienced working with photographers, being in the right position for a rare shot like this would not possible.
Also congratulations to fellow photographers and friends; Bernt Østhus, Bjørn H Stuedal and Olav Thokle winning awards in the same contest. Visit http://photonature.si/ for more information.
