The resident Spotted Eagle Owl at Nossob camp in Kgalagadi Transfrontier treated me to this photographic opportunity when it decided to sit on a bare, dry and big tree with branches reaching out into the picture with the pink sunset behind. The Raw of this Image looked flat, and I was not very impressed at first. However when I raised the exposure and brought out the true colours I realised that this picture has potential. For me the branches reaching in and out of focus gives this picture a nightmarish quality. The owl sitting in the bottom of the frame and staring into the distance keeping watch over this tree adds to the horror and creepy feel of this picture.
