1993, Amboseli, Kenya
Plate 76, 18x27
The magic of this scene was that it seemed as if nature had taken her very large hand and arbitrarily scattered a number of these beautiful flamingos on what now appears to be a loosely woven tapestry. There was a beauty both of color and motion, added to which was the gentle fragrance of Africa. Though they moved about, they seemed to move in their own circle, in their own sphere. They seemed not to bump into each other or push their neighbor for added ground. It was a most kind and gentle scene, one that I shall never forget. If there is a heaven, part of it must be as beautiful as this scene in Kenya.
