Oriol Alamany - Failed picture?
Several years ago I made a long journey around South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia. While visiting the Namib Desert I could not shake the thought of Jim Brandenburg classic picture of an Oryx walking over the big sand dunes. But although I saw some Oryxes, they were always far away and never on the dunes. A little bit frustrated I gave no value to the photographs I made. But now, looking to my slides files I found this picture and think it’s not so bad, although the concept is totally different from the picture that I had in my mind years ago.
