Oct. 12 Arthur Hoyle and his wife, Mimi, were on a camping safari in Botswana when they stopped to enjoy this sight. The Pacific Palisades couple loved their first trip to Africa, though the camping safari was arduous -- up every morning at 5:45, on the trail before sunrise, back to camp at sunset for drinks, dinner and early to bed. For this shot, Arthur used a Mamiya/Sekor 1000DTL SLR camera loaded with Fujichrome 200 slide film. He shot through an 85-205 Vivitar telezoom lens set at 180mm, f3.5, 1/60th.
